Orange and Cinnamon Cake

Ingredients

1  and 1/2 cups Self raising flour

NB: {for the non-Australians: Self raising flour is the equivalent of 1 cup of plain or all purpose flour mixed with 2 teaspoons of Baking powder sifted and mixed thoroughly}

3/4 cup  (180 g) castor sugarIMG_20140805_173630

2 tablespoons skim milk powder*

125 g ( 4 0z) butter

2 eggs

water*

zest of an orange, grated

1 tsp cinnamon

3 tsp cinnamon, (extra)

3 tsp castor sugar (extra)

1 tbspn butter (extra)

Combine sifted flour, sugar and milk powder in bowl of food processor, fitted with metal blade, add chopped cold butter. Process 10 to 20 seconds until butter is evenly distributed in dry ingredients. Seal and store for up to three months the or continue to make a cake….

To Make Cake:

Place cake mix into small basin of electric mixer,

Add eggs, orange zest, 1 tsp cinnamon  and 1/2 cup water, beat on low speed until ingredients are combined.

Increase speed to  medium, beat until mixture is changed in colour and smooth. There should  not be any lumps in the mixture; if there are, beat until they have disappeared. Spread mixture evenly into well-greased tin of your choice. I use a round 20 cm (8 inch) tin or a kugelhof tin.

Bake in moderate oven 30 minutes before turning on to wire rack.. Invert so that the right side is up.

Brush on extra butter that has been melted slightly in a microwave.

Mix extra cinnamon and extra castor sugar together and sprinkle over the top of the cake.

  • You can substitute milk for the skim milk powder and water if  you so choose.

For more orange flavour: replace some of the water(or milk) with orange juice

Delicious with a cuppa!!!
