Step 1: You will need

  • 150 g brown sugar
  • 6 egg yolks
  • 1 tbsp vanilla essence
  • 260 ml orange juice
  • zest of 1 orange
  • 160 ml vegetable oil
  • 350 g self raising flour
  • 6 egg whites
  • 150 g sugar
  • 150 ml orange juice
  • 60 g brown sugar
  • 1 Mixer with whisk attachment
  • 1 Bowl
  • 1 Whisk
  • 1 Rubber spatula
  • 1 Sauce pan
  • 1 spoon
  • 1 Spring form pan 26'cm lined with parchment paper and sides buttered
  • 1 sieve
  • 1 Skewer

Step 2: Preheat the oven

Firstly set the oven to 180 degrees centigrade or gas mark 4.

Step 3: Mix the ingredients

Next, introduce the egg yolks into a large bowl. Then add the brown sugar, orange juice, vanilla essence, the orange zest, vegetable oil and then whisk it all together to fully combine.

Step 4: Sieve the flour

Step 5: Whip the egg whites

Pour the egg whites into the mixer bowl. Lower the whisk attachment and whisk on high speed for roughly 2 minutes. As soon as the egg whites become fluffy, slowly start to add in the sugar, little by little, with the mixer still whisking. You will see the egg whites begin to stiffen and become shiny, so turn down the speed and switch the blender off.

Step 6: Fold in egg whites

Add one third of the stiffened egg whites into the bowl of orange batter and using your whisk mix it in well to fully incorporate, then taking your spatula, add in the remaining egg white mixture. And fold in, which simply means to mix in gently. Continue to fold until everything is thoroughly combined.

Step 7: Transfer to the baking tin

Now pour the orange batter into the lined spring form tin, scraping off any of the mixture from the sides of the bowl with your spatula. Then give it a quick shake to remove any air bubbles and your cake is now ready to bake!

Step 8: Bake

Place the baking tin into the centre of the preheated oven and bake for roughly 40-45 minutes. Check to see if it's fully cooked by placing a skewer into the centre of the cake. If it is dry it is ready to be removed from the oven.

Step 9: Make the sauce

Place a pan over a medium heat and add the orange juice. Then the brown sugar. Give it a quick stir and allow to melt. As it comes to the boil, stir again and remove from the heat.

A useful TIP! If you prefer a drier, less denser cake don't make the sauce.

Step 10: Finishing touches

Pour the sauce over the cake still in its baking tin. The cake immediately absorbs the sauce giving it an extra flavour and making it very moist. Allow to cool before serving.

Step 11: serve

This filling cake can be enjoyed with afternoon tea with a dollop of fresh cream if you like! And that's how to make an Orange cake, the Video Jug way! Enjoy!
