I made this in a 10" round cake pan, and added a 1/2 tsp baking soda and a few splashes of mild vinegar to help it rise - it rose to the perfect size for my pan, and reminded me of a sponge cake. Absolutely delicious - thanks for sharing!

Great cake. Very easy to make with no fuss. Also liked that this recipe didn't have any butter or oil added. I used 1 1/2 oranges as I couldn't get large ones and 4 large eggs. This cake doesn't rise much during cooking. I used a round 20cm tin, but I think you could use any size- even muffin or friand tins for individual serves (perhaps just adjust cooking time to suit).

1 Nov 2011- updating my review to say that I made this recipe into cupcakes- made 12 cupcakes nicely. Baked for about 30 mins and then when cooled I iced them with rich chocolate frosting to make them into jaffa cupcakes.
