  • 210 grams (1 and ½ cup) all-purpose flour, dip and sweep
  • 2 and ½ teaspoons baking powder
  • 18 grams (2 tablespoons) orange zest*
  • 105 grams (½ cup) granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 115 grams (½ cup) melted butter
  • 180 grams (¾ cup) fresh orange juice*, sieved


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F(177°C).  Grease 8 ½ * 4 ½ inch (21,5*10,5cm) loaf pan and line the bottom and sides with parchment paper, about 2 inches(5 cm) of overhang on each side.
  • Place the flour and baking powder into a large bowl and stir with a whisk.  Set aside.
  • Put the sugar and orange zest into a medium bowl and stir them either rubbing with your fingers or using a fork.
  • Add the eggs and mix with a whisk until just combined.  Mix in the melted butter and orange juice.
  • Pour the wet mixture into the flour mixture and stir with a whisk until just combined.
  • Bake for almost 35-38 minutes or until a toothpick that is inserted to center comes out clean.
  • After you remove the pan from the oven, let the cake stay in the pan for 20 minutes and then remove Fom the pan and let it cool for 25 minutes on a wire rack. Enjoy!


*I use the zest of 2 and juice of 3 medium oranges which are around 155 grams. 
How to Store: After the cake is cooled for 1 hour, while it is still warm, you can keep in an airtight container. This way it will stay soft and moist. You can keep 3 days at room temperature and 7 days in the fridge.
How to Freeze: After this loaf cake is almost cooled, you can wrap it with a plastic film. Once totally cooled, you can cover the plastic film-wrapped loaf with aluminum foil or place it in a freezer bag taking all the air inside. You can freeze for up to 3 months.
