Orange Loaf Cake

This orange cake is bursting with bright orange flavor thanks to using fresh orange juice, zest and orange glaze. All you need is a bowl, whisk and 10 minutes active time. Be sure to read through.
A favorite tea time cake, that I’ve always relied on when I have unexpected guests. Finished off with a simple orange sugar glaze and ribbons of whipped cream for an elegant look. If you are looking for a more complex flavor profile, try this saffron infused orange cake, you will love it.

This cake is a savior as it is very simple dump and mix kind of cakes. Make it in a loaf pan, a round cake pan or use mini loaf pans the choice in yours. I’ve made this cake in several occasions before and it never failed me, much like this marble chocolate cake.

Keeping the spirit of simplicity, I finished off the cake with simple orange sugar glaze and some orange slices. You can use this light cream cheese and yogurt frosting if you would like to.

Tips for Success:

Ensure all ingredients are at room temperature to promote even mixing and optimal texture.
For a lighter texture, sift the cake flour before adding it to the batter to prevent clumps.
Fold in the chocolate chips and candied orange slices gently to avoid deflating the batter and ensure even distribution.
Grease the loaf pan thoroughly or use parchment paper to prevent the cake from sticking to the pan.
