  • 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!

Welcome to my blog! After a L O N G break from blogging during which Instagram (vannilla)took over my life, I am returning in a more varied format. Yes, I will bake and have been a Thermomix users from the days before it was cult-like. I'll share the best but I will also include that other hobby in my life, photography from my small island and beyond. If you like what you see, I'd love to hear from you! Anne

i'd love to hear from you...
