Orange and White Chocolate Cake




This is a lovely refreshing cake, perfect for afternoon treat or as a delicious dessert. If you want to make it more of a centre piece you could add chocolate decorations or some candied orange peel. You can also replace the white chocolate in the icing with milk chocolate or dark chocolate if you prefer.

Ingredients

120g flour
1 tsp baking powder
4 eggs
80g butter melted
120g sugar
1 tsp vanilla essence
Juice of 1 orange
Grated zest of half an orange
For white chocolate icing:
250g white chocolate
250g creme fraiche

Method

- Preheat the oven to 180C. Grease a 20cm round cake tin
- In a saucepan boil and reduce the orange juice down to one tablespoon
- In a clean bowl, whisk the eggs, sugar and vanilla essence until pale and creamy. Add the orange zest and reduced orange juice
- Pour in the melted butter then slowly stir in the baking powder and flour and mix well with a wooden spoon
- Pour the mixture into the prepared cake tin and bake in the oven for 30-35 minutes
- For the icing, slowly melt the white chocolate in a clean saucepan. Whisk the creme fraiche in a bowl until thick and then fold in the melted white chocolate
- Once baked, cut the sponge in half horizontally and using a spatula, spread half of the icing over one of the sponge halves then place the other half on top.
- decorate the top with the remaining icing and allow to set in the fridge for at least 1 hour before slicing
