This cake is moist and soft with a light crunchy coating on top and sweet and spiced oranges on the side. It is heavenly, to say the least. Each bite is like a taste of Autumn

How to Make Spiced Orange Cake

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Butter an 8-inch cake plate and set aside.

    In a small bowl mix together all ingredients for the spiced oranges. Strain and store in the refrigerator until ready to serve. Save the juice of the spiced oranges for the cake.

    In a large bowl combine flour, baking soda and baking powder. Using your stand mixer, beat butter and sugar until creamy. Add the egg and milk until well incorporated, then gradually add the dry ingredients until the batter becomes smooth and thick. Lastly, fold in the strained juice of the spiced oranges.

    Smooth batter into the cake plate and evenly top with crumble. You may have some leftover which is always perfect to use for morning muffins or another cake. Just store the leftover crumble in an air tight container.

    Bake for about 35 minutes or until the cake tester comes out clean. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool completely.

    In a small bowl whisk confectioner’s sugar and milk until a nice thick glaze forms. Drizzle this over the cake and let set.

    Serve with chilled oranges and of course, enjoy.
