Orange Loaf Cake

Hello everyone! Every baker has to have a classic Orange Loaf Cake recipe. Today I’m sharing my favorite one! As you might already know, I go for simple easy recipes and this one is not different. Super easy to make with ingredients you already have!

Cake recipes used to intimidate me. Few years back, I didn’t understand how a cake should be made or how much you have to put of each ingredient, or how much you should beat the eggs…. ALL THIS. But now finally I can say that I’m good with cakes and I enjoy baking cakes more than anything else because it’s like magic (well it’s science but who cares!).

This orange loaf cake recipe is one of my favorites because I love orange cakes (who doesn’t?) and it’s super fluffy and moist! A must try if you love classic easy cakes.

Orange Loaf Cake

  1. Preheat your oven to 180℃ and grease a 10*25 cm loaf pan with a bit oil. Set aside.

  2. In a bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside.

  3. With your hand or electric mixer, beat the eggs with the sugar and orange zest until pale and fluffy (about 2 mins on high speed).

  4. Add the oil and orange juice and beat again until incorporated. 

  5. Add the flour mixture gradually while beating until a smooth batter forms. 

  6. Pour batter in your greased loaf pan and bake in preheated oven for 30 mins or until a toothpick inserted in the middle of the cake comes out clean. Remove from oven and let cool completely before applying the glaze.


  1. Mix the powdered sugar with 1 tbsp orange juice first, then add 1/2 tsp at a time until your desired consistency. Drizzle over the cake and enjoy!
