I love oranges...especially in cakes and biscuits...and even more so with chocolate....
Here's a lovely Orange Cake...

Very tasty and very mooorish!!!
Recipe to follow...and of course I used White Wings Gluten Free Self Raising Flour...


~  Preheat oven to 180c/160c fan forced
~ Grease deep 20cm round cake pan

~  150g butter, softened
~  1T finely grated orange rind
~ 2/3C (150g) caster sugar
~ 3 eggs
~ 1 and a 1/2C (225g) gluten free self raising flour
~ 1/4C (60ml) milk
~ 3/4C (120g) icing sugar
~ 1 and a 1/2T orange juice

~ Beat butter, rind, caster sugar, eggs, flour and milk in medium bowl with electric mixer at low speed until just combined.  Increase speed to medium, beat about 3 minutes or until mixture is smooth

~ Spread mixture into pan:  bake about 40m.  

~ Stand cake 5 m;  turn, top-side up, onto wire rack to cool

~  Combine sifted icing sugar and juice in small bowl;  spread over cake

~ Can be stored in air-tight container for up to 4 days
