Orange Loaf Cake

Rate this recipe

The third loaf cake in my baking blitz was Orange Loaf Cake.  This is quite a simple cake, with a very nice flavour, just enough orange to make it interesting, but not overpowering.

Like an idiot I failed to take any photo of this loaf, or indeed, the next one.  So I will have to post a photo later, when I make it again.

Meanwhile here is the recipe I used.

Preheat the oven to 180c/ Gas mark 4

  • ·         ½ cup of orange juice
  • ·         110 grams of butter
  • ·         225 grams  of caster sugar
  • ·         300 grams of plain flour
  • ·         2 tsp of baking powder
  • ·         2 eggs
  • ·         ½ cup of orange juice
  • ·         Tbsp. orange rind


  1. Stir together flour, baking powder.
  2. In a large bowl, beat together butter or margarine and sugar. Beat in eggs one at a time. Stir in rind and 1/2 cup juice. Pour in flour mixture, and stir until moistened. Turn into a greased 9 x 5 x 3 inch loaf pan.
  3. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 1 hour, or until done. Remove loaf from oven, leave to cool before removing from pan and allow to rest on cooling rack.   You can test to see if it is done by inserting a skewer into the middle.  If it comes out clean then the loaf is done.
