During these long summer days and mild evenings, there is nothing we enjoy more than indulging in a tasty treat or two. We have been baking up a storm at Edencoille and our favourite summer cake has to be the Orange Drizzle Cake. Its sweet and sticky, a delicious delight and we would love to share the recipe.
Self-raising flour 225g
Caster Sugar 250g
Caster Sugar for topping 2 tablespoons
In a large mixing bowl add the eggs, sugar, butter and flour then mix well until the substance is smooth.
Grate the rind off the orange and then add into the mixing bowl with the sultanas. Stir gently, then pour into a baking tin lined with greaseproof paper.
Bake this in the oven for 25 – 30 minutes. Keep an eye out for a risen top to the cake that is golden and crisp to the touch.
Remove from the oven and then sprinkle the caster sugar over the top evenly. Juice the 2 oranges and pour the liquid over the top of the whole cake. Leave to cool for 15 minutes.
Cut yourself a generous slice and enjoy!!!!
