For a standard sized cake


  • 75 g salted butter, at room temperature (Dairy)
  • 175 g caster sugar
  • 225 g self-raising flour (Gluten)
  • 3 large eggs (Egg)
  • 2 oranges, 3 zested and juiced, 3 peeled and the zest cut into strips
  • 5 tbsp natural yogurt (Dairy)


  • Preheat the oven to 180ºC/fan 160ºC/gas mark 4. Put the butter, sugar, flour and eggs in a bowl and, using an electric hand mixer, beat until thoroughly combined. Stir in the orange zest, juice and the yogurt.
  • Spoon the mixture into a deep 20cm cake tin, lightly greased and lined with baking parchment. Bake the cake for 50-55 minutes until risen and golden and a skewer inserted into the middle comes out clean. Cool in the tin for 10 minutes, then turn out, remove the paper and cool completely on a wire rack.
  • Meanwhile, bring a pan of water to the boil, add the sliced orange zest and boil for 1 minute until the zest starts to soften. Dry on kitchen paper. Once the cake has cooled, dust with icing sugar and decorate with the strips of orange zest.
