Cook Time 45 mins 
Total Time 1 hr 


  • 10 oz unsalted butter 
  • 1 1/2 cup granulated sugar 
  • 5 large eggs 
  • 2 cups cake flour 
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder 
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed orange juice 
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract 
  • 2-3 tablespoons orange zest 


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 160°C/325°F. Grease a 10 inch pan generously with cooking spray and set aside. 
  2. Cream together the butter and sugar at high speed in a stand mixture until it’s fluffy and starting to look white, about 4- 5 minutes. 
  3. Stir in the eggs, a little at a time, beating the mixture well between each addition. Sift in the flour and baking powder into the batter, and then add the grated orange zest , juice , almond, and vanilla extract. 
  4. Stir well until everything is fully combined. Scrape down the sides of the mixing bowl. 
  5. Pour batter into a greased cake pan. Tap pan on work surface to eliminate any large air bubbles. 
  6. Bake at 325 F until a tester inserted into the center comes out clean,about 45–50 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack. 
  7. Sprinkle cake with powdered sugar and serve with orange curd or drizzle over cake.
