Orange Marbled Cake

Let's begin by me telling Skinny Mum and Family First thank you so much. Skinny Mum said my blog converted her family to love mooncakes and the simple recipes suited her new found interest - cooking. Family First gave Babe in the City - KL an award for being one of the coolest blog in her list. *sobs* I sincerely thank you both for these... reading two mentions in one morning could be a little overwhelming heh :p

Apologies to Family First, Nigel and Ciki for not participating and continuing with your meme/tag/award. I've mentioned sometime back that I'm not very fond of these, and at one point it was hard but I managed that very emo one. So thanks but no thanks.

Back to today's post... I just improvised on my Marbled Cake recipe and came out with this one, Orange Marbled Cake. Just need to substitute the milk with orange juice. On top of that, grated zest of an orange. The orange smell and taste was unbelievable. I was glad it made somebody's kid happy :p that day.

Orange Marbled Cake

Please excuse for the look of the cake. The crack was caused by putting too much batter into the loaf pan. I've read that to prevent that, you'll need to fill the pan half-way through and not any more.

Do soak the orange in hot water for a while to remove the wax off its skin. Errr for double security reason, I tend to give it a brush as well haha. Wash off with more hot water and wipe dry before zesting. I do this with my lemons too.
