Orange Cake Recipe - Afternoon tea Cake

10 minute Processor Orange Cake

Reminescing about my Danish Grandmother who always used to cook a fresh Orange cake for Sunday afternoon tea, I remembered how, as children,
my brother and I looked forward to visiting her house as the aroma of fresh home bake would come wafting out the door, when we arrived.
It is important to anyone can abandon convenience food a.k.a. supermarket style prepared cakes, in favour of a mouth-watering freshly baked treat for afternoon tea,  and know that it is not difficult nor time consuming. I think this cake took me less than 10 minutes to cook, due to speedy preparation in the processor. Then you simply wait for the oven timer to ring, and voila!
Just perfect for a lazy Sunday afternoon tea, this quick and easy recipe will have your family's mouth watering for more. Apart from the sugar content, and a small amount of necessary butter,there are no extra unhealthy ingredients; plus it has the advantage of a bit of Vitamin C and delightful orange flavour.
A cake that is good for you! Yay!
No need to add any frosting or topping, just eat it warm out of the oven.
Of course, if you wish a dusting of vanilla/icing sugar, or a cream cheese frosting would be a nice option,if you aren't counting calories.
1 cup Castor or fine grain sugar
1 Cup Self Raising flour ( or 1 cup plain flour and 2 tsp baking powder)
2 tablespoon extra of plain flour
2 tsp grated orange rind
