Recipe: Super Moist, Super Easy Orange Cake

I love cooking and baking but I don't like to spend too much time in the kitchen. I think probably if I have my ultimate dream kitchen, this habit will change perhaps? I don't know. Well anyway orange cake is very significant to me late dad. I remembered when I was a kid me mum always made orange cake for me dad and the entire house will just filled with the beautiful scent of orange. And if me mum rajin enough, she'll make orange juice for the whole family after that. Ahhh love, love, love.

In fact I just remembered that the last cake I made to me dad was orange cake as well. He loved it. The cake was perfect for him, it was not too sweet, perfect for diabetic patient. But the only drawback was that, it has more steps to get that perfect moist texture of that cake. Not my cup of tea when I always not that rajin. But I'm so glad I was rajin enough to bake that very last orange cake for me dad. :')


But this one, today's cake is definitely a winner! The original recipe calls for "dump everything in the bowl and mix well." It's great! And the result of it is a fail proof and super moist cake with absolutely minimal bowl to wash after that. And say if you're even more lazier than I am, you can just dump everything in the food processor, pulse it, pour it in the baking tin and then straight away bake it. 

Super Moist, Super Easy Orange Cake

Ingredients: 

125g of butter, softened
1/4 cup of milk
1/4 cup of orange juice
2 eggs
3/4 cup of sugar
1 1/2 cups of sifted self-raising flour
1 tbsp of finely grated orange zest

Directions:

1. Combine all cake ingredients and beat thoroughly for 3 minutes.
2. Pour mixture into a greased baking tin.
3. Bake in center of 180C oven for 30-40 minutes.

Anyway the cake was so good on its own that it do not need any icing or icing sugar because you can really taste the beautiful flavour of orange, and the outer layer of the cake is just too "perfect"! But say if you want to ice the cake, here's the recipe for a good orange icing.

Ingredients:

1/3 cup of butter, softened
1 1/2 cups of sifted icing sugar
2 tbsp of orange juice
1/2 tsp of fine grated orange zest
