DIRECTIONS

  • Heat the oven to 350 degrees F and grease a 10" or 11" cake tin.
  • Finely grate the zest from two of the oranges into a large bowl.
  • Cut the peel and pith from all of the oranges with a serrated knife, and slice quite thickly.
  • Drizzle the golden syrup on the bottom of the cake tin.
  • Arrange the best orange slices on top of the syrup and finely chop any that don't fit.
  • Put all of the remaining ingredients into the bowl with the orange zest and chopped orange.
  • Beat with an electric hand mixer until smooth.
  • Spoon on top of the oranges, spread lightly and make a deep hollow in the centre of the mix with the back of a spoon - this will ensure that the cake rises evenly.
  • Bake for 45 to 50 minutes until firm when pressed.
  • Allow to settle for 5 minutes before turning out.
  • Drizzle with additional golden syrup if you like and serve with custard or ice cream.
