The Perfect Orange Cake Recipe 🍊

After so many failed attempts, I finally have the perfect orange cake recipe that could be done with ingredients that could be found everywhere and minimal tools. Our experts in the kitchen ( BabyT and BabyL ) approved of the recipe. So here you go:


1 cup sugar (I use cane sugar to play it healthiER) 🍚
116 g melted butter
2 Big Eggs (use 3 if they're small) 🥚
1/4 Cup orange zest (a little bit less than 1/4 cup, I'm sorry, but that's the exact measure) 🍊
1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour 🍚
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract (you can use vanilla sugar)
2 tablespoon orange juice 🍊
6 tablespoon buttermilk (calm down it's easy to make. You just mix 1 cup of milk with 1 tablespoon of Lemon and let it rest for 10 minutes)  🥛

For the orange icing

1/3 cup butter softened 

1 1/2 cups icing sugar sifted 

2 tbs orange juice *to taste 

1/2 tsp orange zest finely grated


Start by mixing 1/2 cup of milk with 1/2 tablespoon of Lemon juice to create the buttermilk. Set aside for at least 10 minutes. It should get lumpy (not very appealing, but it's the main ingredient for fluffiness)
Meanwhile, mix 116 g butter with 1 cup of sugar with a mixer until fluffy (I love everything fluffy 🌸 )
In a separate bowl, mix the dry ingredients: (Flour, baking powder, baking soda, vanilla, and salt). 
Add one egg at a time to the fluffed butter + sugar mixture
Add the zest, the juice, and the buttermilk alternatively
Add the flour one spoon at a time
Pour the yummy mixture in a cake tray (round or rectangular) and place in the oven for about 40 minutes on 170 c. Since ovens are different, you know your cake is baked when you insert a toothpick in the center of the cake, and it comes off clean and dry.

Mix orange icing ingredients together in a bowl, then ice cake.


Wait until it's cold to eat it! 🐷
