This Moist Orange Cake is a simple Butter cake with a subtle orange flavor and aroma. It has the goodness of the Orange juice along with the zest that takes it to the next level


  • 3 tbsp fresh orange juice
  • ¼ tsp baking soda
  • 175 grams all-purpose flour
  • 200 grams castor sugar
  • 115 grams salted butter, room temperature
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup buttermilk
  • Zest of 3 big oranges
  • Few drops of orange food color (optional)

For the Orange Glaze:

  • 50 ml fresh orange juice
  • 25 grams castor sugar
