Orange Carrot Fruit Cake

This cake is so refreshing due to the orange juice and also the grated rind of the orange. Ingredients:
  • grated rind of 1 orange
  • 50ml fresh squeezed orange juice
  • 100g sunflower oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 100g castor sugar
  • 30 g dried cranberries
  • 125g grated carrot
  • 30g dried apricots, chopped
  • 25g walnuts, chopped
  • 120g self raising flour
  • 1/4 tsp bicarbonate of soda
Method: Grease and line a 20 x 7.5cm loaf pan and preheat oven to 175c . Sift the self raising flour and the bicarbonate of soda to a mixing bowl. Combine oil, sugar and eggs until light and fluffy. Pour in the orange juice and mix well. Add in the flour, carrots, cranberries, apricots and walnuts. Mix well. Transfer batter into a prepared loaf pan and bake for 35-40 minutes.

Hi it's Becks.. Can I substitute the sunflower oil with anything else e.g. butter?

Yes but try to avoid butter as it will make the cake heavy. You can use vegetable or corn oil. Peanut oil will over power the flavour of the cake
