Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven to moderate (180oC/160cC fan-forced). Grease a deep 28cm round cake pan, line base with baking paper.
  2. Beat butter and sugar in a small bowl with an electric mixer until light and creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating until combined between additions. Fold in sifted flour, then orange juice and boiling water.
  3. Spread the mixture into the prepared pan and bake for about 35 minutes or until cooked when tested with a skewer. Stand cake for 2 minutes before turning onto a wire rack to cool.
  4. Dust with sifted icing sugar, if desired.
