NAMIBIA: Orange Cake

Orange Cake

Very similar to the Moroccan lemon cake from last week, only this is orange. I pot orange slice on top, which may have been a mistake and explains the caramelized blobs on top…


250 g butter (1 cup + 1 tablespoon)
2 cups caster sugar 
4 eggs
2 cups plain flour
1/4 cup self-rising flour
2 tablespoons grated orange rind
Orange segments for decoration


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C).

Spray a cake pan (10 inch x 2 inch deep or bundt pan) with non-stick spray (I added this part, seriously doubt kitchens out in the African bush have such a product).

Beat together butter and sugar. Beat in eggs, one at a time. Stir in half the flour, then the remaining flour until smooth. Stir in orange rind. Spread into pan and bake for 1 1/2 hours, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
