With two oranges and yoghurt this cake is really simple but excellent. This cake is a fantastic colour for making cupcake jack o lanterns at Halloween time.


Serves: 12 

  • 95ml vegetable oil
  • 1 cup (250g) white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup plain yoghurt
  • 2 oranges, zested and juiced
  • 1 1/2 cups (185g) plain flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • Flat strap liquorice

Preparation:1hour15min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:1hour45min 

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C.
  2. In a medium bowl mix together the vegetable oil, sugar and eggs. Stir in yoghurt and orange zest. Combine the flour and baking powder; stir into the mixture just until blended. Pour the dough into a greased 20x30cm baking tin.
  3. Bake for 30 minutes in the preheated oven or until a knife inserted into the cake comes out clean. Poke holes in the cake with a knife and pour the juice from the oranges over the cake slowly until it has all been absorbed.
  4. Cut the liquorice into small triangles and arrange to make a jack o lantern face.
