orange almond bun cake

  • Servings: 10
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print


  • 125g unsalted butter
  • 350g caster sugar
  • Grated zest of an orange
  • 3 eggs beaten
  • 10 ml vanilla extract
  • 320 g plain (all purpose) flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 300g sour cream or 250g sour cream and juice of the orange.



Preheat oven to 180°C/350°F

Prepare your tin well. I used this williams Sonoma bun tin Cinnamon Bun Pull-Apart Cake Pan | Williams-Sonoma

this is a 10″ cake tin so any deep tin that size should work. Alternatively make this mixture as muffins.

  • Beat the butter, sugar and orange rind until light and fluffy.
  • Gradually add the eggs and vanilla extract
  • Add the flour, baking powder, and baking soda, alternating with the sour cream
  • Bake for about 40-45 minutes.
  • Always check 10 minutes before end of cooking time as ovens vary A LOT

You could drizzle an orange flavoured icing over this.

Happy easter!

hi! i am Anne (hence vANNilla) - two 'N's autocorrect WILL autocorrect - grrrrrr I can most often be found cooking up a storm in the kitchen,(with my trusty thermomix) behind a camera or a kindle. If you are a traveller/photographer my bog is @vannilla If you have come as a baker my blog is i studied economics in Edinburgh in the early 70's; now retired from a day job, on paper i have plenty of time to explore the blogosphere and enjoy the shared experiences of others. like every other retiree i know we wonder how we fitted in a day job. I split my time between Guernsey,. In the Channel Islands -a 20-odd square mile island with 60thousand+ inhabitants- and Phoenix, Arizona. The mix is perfect- the former is beautiful but attacks of cabin fever are never too far away. Arizona, on the other hand IS king of the open road and has THE biggest bluest sky EVER. my blogs revolve around baking (vannillarock) and photography/travel if you like what you see please do start a conversation :)

i'd love to hear from you...
