Orange Drizzle Sponge

Here is another one straight from the vault. Its popular, easy, and its great for the summer time. Our recipe makes a 10.5" by 15" tray.

Cake Ingredients 
  • 130 g of Compound Orange
  • 12 eggs
  • Salt
  • 700g Sugar
  • 300ml double cream
  • 560g flour
  • 20g baking power
Syrup Ingredients
  • 50g light brown sugar
  • 100g orange juice
  • 20g orange compound

You start by whisking together the orange compound, eggs, salt, and sugar for the cake. Then you stir in the cream. After that is done, sift together the baking powder and then then thoroughly mix it with your wet ingredients and transfer to a lined tin. You then bake it for 30-45 minutes at 160C or until a nice golden brown. 

While its cooking you should take the time to mix together the syrup. Put all the ingredients in a smal pan and slowly bring to a boil. When the cake is ready allow a few minutes to cool and then brush the whole cake with the syrup, if there is any left slowly drizzle the rest to your taste. Allow it to soak for 30 minutes and then and only then can you finally enjoy it. If you feel like bing fancy you can top it with orange peals or zest as shown in the picture but its not necessary, this cake is good no matter what form it comes in or how pretty it looks. 

Happy Baking Everyone!
