Orange Cake with Liquor

recipe from Jane


Orange Cake with Liquor
(adapted from Jane's Corner with slight adjustment)

175g Butter
75g sugar

4 egg Yolks
30ml Orange Juice 
1 Tbs Orange Liquor (i use Contreau)
zest from 1 one orange

165g Self raising flour

4 egg whites
75g sugar

  • Beat butter and 75g sugar until light and fluffy. Add in yolk one at a time. Beat well after adding each one. Then add in orange juice and zest, and liquor mix well.
  • Lower speed, add in flour gradually, fold with a spatula and set it aside.
  • In another clean bowl, whisk egg white with the balance of sugar on high speed until soft peaks.
  • Fold in the egg whites into the butter mixture until well blended. Do not over-do it or the egg whites will deflate.
  • Pour into the prepared cake pan and bake for 45 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean when tested. (note: covering loosely with aluminium foil after 30 minutes when the cake starts to turn brown)
