Orange Cake - to chase away your blues..

My entries are usually fuss free and express. I don't have the luxury of time to bake cakes that require hours in the kitchen and spending every minute to decorate and dress it nicely anymore. As I hold a full time job my weekends are very precious to me along with other commitments, I can only afford to do fuss free cakes. Here's another one from me.

A cake that you can bake on a weekday night and it takes only 20min to prepare. Baking time is about 30min and before you know it, you have freshly baked orange sponge cake right in your kitchen.. Something sweet to help you chase away your Monday blues...

Plain Flour - 110g (sifted)
Melted butter - 70g
Eggs - 4
Vanilla Essence - 1 tsp
Caster sugar - 100g
Some orange zest
Orange juice - 1/2 tsp

1. Whisk eggs, sugar and vanilla essence till pale and creamy (approx 4 min on medium speed)
2. Pour in orange zest and juice and mix
3. Fold in flour and incorporate well
4. Pour in melted butter and mix well
5. Bake in a 20cm pan at 180deg C for 30 min

Can you smell it?
