Orange yogurt loaf with orange glace icing for Alphabakes



The theme for this month's Alphabakes is "O", I plumped for one of the more obvious O's - oranges, this easy bakes uses orange zest in the cake and the oranges juice in the glace icing which creates a lovely contrast to the soft crumbly cake. Using my trusty yogurt cake recipe I just added the finely grated zest, its a very versatile recipe and would also work well with lemon.

Oranges are great at this time of year and signal to me that the festive season is just around the corner. The resulting cake is beautifully elegant and ideal for afternoon tea, give it a try.

What you need
  • 1C yogurt
  • 1C sunflower oil
  • 1 egg
  • 2C caster sugar
  • 3C self raising flour
  • Grated orange zest
For the glace icing
  • Icing sugar
  • Orange juice
What you do
  • Mix all the cake ingredients together until you have a smooth cake mixture
  • Pour into 2 prepared loaf tins
  • Bake in a pre heated oven at 180c for approx 45 minutes until cooked through
  • Cool in the tin intially and then on a wire rack
  • Once the cake is fully cool, then mix the icing sugar with a little orange juice till the icing is the thickness of double cream
  • Drizzle onto the cooled cake artistically

I found your Orange yogurt loaf with orange glace icing for Alphabakes on Pinterest and awesomely amaze to include this recipe in my secret book. The foodbook I have is actually a seafood recipe yet I got a glimpse to add this up. I will try this at home after work. Deliciously thanks!
