This is a really easy one when you know you should bake something but really can't be bothered.

Pop all the ingredients in a bowl and mix away.

  • 30ml milk, room temperature
  • 30ml freshly squeezed orange juice  
method
  • preheat oven to 180C/160C fan
  • grease and line a 20 cm round cake tin or a loaf tin
  • put all ingredients in a large bowl and beat with an electric mixer for a few minutes until mixture is smooth
  • pour into cake tin and bake for about 35min, test with cake skewer
  • allow to cool in tin, ice when cool
to make icing 
  • 30g butter, softened, a couple of tablespoons of freshly squeezed orange juice, about 200g icing sugar, maybe more

I found this recipe while searching for an easy cake to make quickly. It's in the oven now and smells amazing! It was really easy. I didn't have a zester but I used a serrated knife instead.

I thought I'd post the measurements for my fellow metrically challenged Americans :) 150 grams of sugar is 2/3 of a cup and 225 g flour is 1 and a 1/2 cups plus 2 tsp of flour. 30 ml is a little over one ounce :)
