Orange Cake with Sweet Citrus Sauce


220 g (1 C) butter
220 g (1 C) light brown sugar
15 ml (1 T) Rhodes Seville Orange Marmalade
3 eggs
160 ml (⅔ C) milk
220 g (1 C) self-raising flour
7.5 ml (1½ t) baking powder
125 ml (½ C) Rhodes 100 % Orange Fruit Juice
125 ml (½ C) sugar

to serve: lightly whipped cream


Cream the butter and the sugar until pale and light. Beat in the Rhodes Seville Orange Marmalade. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in the milk. Sift together the flour and the baking powder. Add to the mixture and beat to mix until well combined. Pour the batter into a baking pan sprayed with non-stick spray. Bake in an oven pre-heated to 180˚C for 35 minutes or until the cake is golden and a skewer, when inserted in the middle, comes out clean. Remove from the oven and use a flat knife to loosen the cake from the pan. Prick a few holes in the top of the cake with a skewer. To make the syrup: Heat the Rhodes 100% Orange Fruit Juice and the sugar over a medium heat until the sugar is dissolved. Pour the warm syrup over the still-hot cake in the pan and then leave to cool before turning the cake out of the pan. Serve with fresh cream.
