Orange cake

 Oranges are a very good source of vitamins, especially vitamin C..., and just imagine if it goes like this in your kids tummy :) this recipe is for mom to kid.

125g butter, softened
1 cup caster sugar
Zest and juice of an orange
3 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups self-raising flour
¼ cup milk

1½ cups icing sugar
1 tbsp orange juice

Preheat oven to 180°C. Grease and line a 20cm square or round cake tin.

Place all ingredients in a mixing bowl and beat on low speed until just combined.

Increase speed and beat until smooth.

Pour into prepared tin and bake for 40 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean.

Allow cake to cool for 5 minutes in the tin and then turn out onto a cake tray to cool.

To make the icing, combine icing sugar and enough orange juice to make a smooth paste.

Spread icing onto cold cake.
This is a great, quick cake to make and is perfect for afternoon tea and for lunch boxes.
You will get a flatter cake using the square tin, but then it is easy to cut into squares for lunch boxes.
Can be mixed in a food processor.
I like to add some orange zest to the icing, but that depends on your children’s ‘bit’ tolerance.
