Orange bundt cake

Preparation: 15 mins

Cooking: 45 mins

Makes: 12 slices


  • 4 eggs
  • 200 g sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla sugar
  • 200 ml vegetable oil
  • 200 ml freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 3 teaspoons orange zest
  • 300 g self raising flour
  • icing sugar for dusting


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  2. Prepare a ring or bundt cake tin with butter and flour.
  3. Separate the egg white from the egg yolks.
  4. Beat the egg whites with an electric mixer until stiff.
  5. Beat the egg yolks, the sugar and the vanilla sugar until pale and fluffy.
  6. Slowly add the oil and continue beating until incorporated.
  7. Add the orange juice and zest and incorporate as well.
  8. Sieve the flour over the egg mixture. Fold in carefully.
  9. Add the egg whites and carefully fold in as well.
  10. Pour the mixture into the prepared dish and bake for 45 minutes.
  11. Make the skewer test – it should come clean out of the cake.
  12. Leave the cake in the pan for about 15 minutes, remove from the tin by gently going around the edges with a knife and turn it onto a plate.
  13. Let the cake cool completely and dust with icing sugar or cover with some orange glaze, made by mixing icing sugar with orange juice until obtaining a thick yet still pourable syrup.
