Good Morning Nagaland today shares the recipe for ‘orange drizzle cake’ as prepared by the young baker.

Orange drizzle cake:

125 g butter
3/4 cup caster sugar
2 eggs
3 teaspoons grated orange rind
1 1/2 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda

3. Add eggs one at a time.
4. Add grated orange rind.
5. Fold in flour and milk, alternating flour and milk, and ending with flour.
6. Add in squeezed orange juice.
7. Butter baking pan.
8. Spoon batter in the pan.
9. Bake for 45-50 mins, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.

Why I launched “April Jedidiah” ?
I’m a musician by profession, and theologian by calling, but I’m really passionate about baking and find it relaxing. So, I started this company to share my love of baking with my friends and family, and people who can’t normally enjoy such baked goodies due to income restriction. My idea is to provide quality home baked stuff at a reasonable price.
