Manderin Orange Cake

This is my own recipe, and is it a lovely moist and very orangey cake. Everyone who tries it asks for the recipe!



4 oz butter or margarine
6 oz caster sugar
2 beaten eggs
Grated rind of a (well-washed) orange or two mandarins
1 small tin manderin orange segments, drained
7 oz Self Raising flour, sifted
1 tblspn orange juice (or milk if preferred)

Cream butter, sugar and rind till fluffy. Gradually beat in eggs. Mix in sifted flour and orange juice until soft dropping consistency. Add manderin orange segments and mix well to incorporate and break up a little. Grease and line an 8" cake tin. Bake at 350 degrees F/180 degrees C/Gas Mark 4 for 45-50 mins, until firm and golden and shrinking away from sides of tin. Enjoy!

Jennie! Thank you so much for your recipe. It is similar to mine except mine has a fluffy orange flavored frosting. I'm not overly fond of frosting, so I am thinking I will like yours better.

Thanks!

Linda
