I saw this orange cake on Anna's blog and decided that today - a cool and rainy Saturday - is the perfect day to try it out.
I actually got my eldest son to do most of the work, while I was making dinner - it's one of those cakes where you just mix everything together and put it in a cake pan.
Put the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, sugar) in a big bowl, and in a jug combine eggs, oil, vanilla extract and orange zest and juice. Mix it all together gently.
Cook for one hour (mine took 50 mins) at 180 C. Leave to cool in pan and then remove onto a cake rack.
3 cups self-raising flour
1 cup sugar
1 cup vegetable oil (I used olive oil)
3 tsp baking powder
zest and juice of 2 oranges
1 tbsp vanilla essence
