Everyone loves a creamy moist cake, but sometimes this is hard to make, or you make a cake with too much cream, in this case you will always get a perfect cake and if you know me, you know i always prefer cakes with fruits and vegetables, they just have better textures and better more realistic flavours, instead of synthetic vanilla or basic chocolate.

Also this is a perfect cake to bake on a rectangular or loaf tin, so it will bake fast and its easier to absorb all of the syrup, enjoy the recipe!

Try this delicious recipe, to create a super moist Orange Cake with a Citrus Drizzle.


  • Flour – 180gr
  • Sugar – 180gr
  • Butter – 110gr
  • Milk – 4 Tablespoons
  • Orange – 1 (Zest)
  • Eggs – 2
  • Butter – For Greasing
  • Orange – 1 (Peel)
  • Orange – 2 (Juice)
  • Sugar – 75gr


  1. Preheat the oven to 180ºC. Grease a rectangular baking tin with butter, then line the base and sides with parchment paper.
  2. Combine all the cake ingredients in a bowl, whisk until you achieve a smooth and fluffy batter.
  3. Pour the batter into the prepared tin and bake for about 45 minutes or until the cake is perfectly baked. Test readiness by inserting a toothpick in the center; if it comes out dry, the cake is ready. Remove from the oven and allow it to cool slightly.
  4. Meanwhile, as the cake bakes, julienne the peel of one orange (cut it into thin, long strips). Place these in a small saucepan, cover them with the juice of two oranges and add the sugar. Simmer gently to create a light syrup, ensuring the sugar dissolves but avoiding overcooking.
  5. Once the cake is slightly cooled, poke holes on the top using a toothpick and drizzle the warm syrup slowly over the cake to allow it to absorb. Leave a few peel strips on top.
  6. Allow the cake to cool completely before removing it from the tin. It’s ready to serve. Enjoy your slice of this orange creamy cake.
Notes: Use a rectangular or loaf tin for even drizzle absorption, a circular cake will not absorb evenly, normally the center will be way more wet than the sides. Coating the pan with parchment paper ensures easy release. Drizzle the cake with warm syrup to absorb evenly, you can make other syrups or even just add warm milk for a different version of this cake.
