I absolutely love baking with fruit and this Orange cake is no exception. Soft layers of sponge flavoured with citrus and then topped with a zesty cream frosting makes one delicious cake
I ( including Gardening Foodie’s official taste testers….my husband and sons fell in love with this recipe, the very first time that I baked this cake and you will really understand after you taste it as well. It has an incredibly soft and moist texture. The orange flavouring in this cake are subtle and not at all overpowering.
This cake smells so heavenly while it is baking, that you almost cannot wait to gulp it down before it is cooled to frost….( yes, this is me speaking from experience)
ZESTY CREAM FROSTING
Although the cake is moist enough to eat on its own, frosting it with heavy cream infused with orange zest, takes it to a whole new level of deliciousness. And then streaks of orange glaze and grated orange zest to decorate adds a beautiful finish.
This Orange Cake with zesty Cream Frosting is really simple to bake and the frosting very easy and quick to prepare and makes such a wonderful treat or surprise.
I always love baking a three layer cake( more frosting layers) using my favourite three 9×2 inch Cake Pan Set. or if you do not have 3 pans then your 2x 20cm cake tins will work perfectly as well.
