An Orange Poundin Cake 

Most people have a weakness for chocolate, my weakness is a pound cake. Add cream to it and I’ll walk away! There’s something about the lightness and freshness about a pound cake that makes me want to just keep cutting slices from it and eating it all! Perfect with a side of jam as well and a cup of Turkish my new found love. 

I found a super easy recipe to achieve the pound cake taste and texture without all the extra unnecessary ingredients. I tweaked it a little by adding Orange Blossom water to it. You can add anything you want. I’ll be trying cinnamon next time since that’s my second weakness! 


1 large orange squeezed and zested
3 large eggs 

2/3 cup Butter 

3/4 cup sugar 

1 1/3 cup all purpose flour 

1/2 tsp baking powder 

Pre heat over to 180C, blend egg and sugar till it’s a pale yellow and little thick. Around 3 minutes. 

Melt butter and add to mixture and then sift the flour and b.p. together. Then add to bowl along with juice and end off with a stir of orange zest and 1 tbsp orange blossom. 

Add into greased pan and bake for 40 min.

Pretty straight forward and easy recipe! 

The end!
