Orange Butter Cake

A very 'festive flavour' cake :) decorated with orange flavour mini candies & homemade candied orange peels. Too bad I do not have Grand Marnier which can be added into the white chocolate ganache....

  • 250gm salted butter
  • 100gm castor sugar
  • 4 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 tsp orange zests
  • 250gm self-raising flour, sifted
  • 100ml fresh orange juice
White Chocolate Ganache (optional) : Boil 200ml cream and pour into 500gm chopped white chocolate, stir till melted. Rest in room temperature until thicken enough to spread stirring occasionally.

  1. Grease & line base a 7in cake tin.
  2. Using a electric whisk, cream butter & sugar until light & fluffy.
  3. Add in eggs gradually and beat till combine. Add orange zest and mix evenly.
  4. Fold in flour, alternate with orange juice in 3 batches.
  5. Bake in preheated oven at 160 deg cel for 60mins. Rest cake in tin for 10mins before cooling completely on wire rack.

Hi Peng,

Well as always I do keep up with ur latest creations. love the look of this one. will definitely try. However, i'm a little confused about the orange zest part. I google'd it but still a little unsure of how to extract it. Your help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Hi Nagina...for the orange zest, use a small grater to 'grate' it, avoid grating the white pith or else will be bitter.
