This is an easy to make recipe, and it tastes great. A simple cake made from scratch, and flavoured with honey and orange.


Serves: 12 

  • 2 1/2 cups (610g) plain flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup (220g) white sugar
  • 1 cup (300g) honey
  • 1/2 cup (125ml) vegetable oil
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons grated orange zest
  • 1 cup (250ml) orange juice

Preparation:20min  ›  Cook:45min  ›  Ready in:1hour5min 

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Grease and flour a 23cm x 30cm tin. Sift together the flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda, salt and cinnamon. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine sugar, honey, oil, eggs and orange zest. Beat in the flour mixture alternately with the orange juice, mixing just until incorporated. Pour batter into prepared tin.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 40 to 50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean. Allow to cool.

I made muffins instead of a cake, just cos it's easier for lunchboxes. I used two oranges for this. Used all the zest (probably about 4 tsp)but there still wasn't enough juice as per the recipe so I added half a cup of apple sauce (I keep it in the freezer as it usually makes low fat cakes more moist anyway). I also beat the eggs and (brown)sugar together till creamy before adding the other ingredients. The mix was a bit wet so I added another half a cup of flour. These were really tasty with a nice strong orange flavour. Great for the whole family, only problem is that they need to be eaten pretty quickly as they dry out a bit! - 23 Aug 2011


Lovely taste with the cinnamon and honey. Light and fluffy while still warm. - 22 Aug 2011
