Homemade Cake with Orange

DSC 0140 Spitiko Keik me Portokali

This is a very simple and easy cake to make, and it is probably one of the most common here in Greece. You can change the flavor of the cake by using half cocoa to make a marble cake or even using another fruit zest of your preference. Here, I used the whole wheat version and added orange zest.

It is big enough to share and it stays incredibly moist for a few days if you choose not to share and keep it all yourself.

1 pkg. Farina Flour (Self-Rising Flour)
dash of salt
250 g. butter, softened
2 cups (450 g.) sugar ….. < I typically reduce by almost half >
4 eggs, beaten
1 teacup milk (240 g.)
2 tsp. vanilla
Orange or Lemon zest, or use 1/3 batter and add a few Tbsp. of cocoa, then swirl into batter.

Beat sugar and butter until light. Beat in eggs one at a time, stir in vanilla and zest. Alternate adding milk and flour, whisking until smooth. If you want to make marble, remove 1/3 batter now and add cocoa (you will need to use normal sugar if making cocoa so it doesn’t taste bitter), pour normal batter into a greases bundt or choice of pan. Swirl cocoa batter into mix and bake in preheated oven at 180 C (350 F) for 55-60 minutes or until beautifully golden brown and knife comes out clean when inserted. Cool and top with melted chocolate or leave plain.
