Reduced Fat Orange Butter Cake

200g butter
4 eggs
80g castor sugar
200g self-raising flour
Juice from one orange
Grated orange peel from one orange

Cream butter and sugar till the colour turn pale on high speed.
Add egg one at a time
Blend in flour, either using a spatula or use pulse mode
Alternate with orange juice and the grated orange.
Preheat oven to 180 degree celcius
Bake for 40 mins.

I have taken one slice ...

For a plain butter cake, skip the orange juice by replacing with 2 table spoon of milk/water and 1 tsp of vanilla essence. You may want to increase the sugar to 90g as orange juice is sweeter so I have reduced sugar in my recipe.

You can also replace self-raising flour with wholemeal flour plus 2 tsp of baking powder and 1/2 of bicarbonate of soda.
