Mandarin Orange Butter cake ~ 橘子奶油蛋糕


I made this butter cake with Mandarin oranges which were abundant during the recent Chinese New Year.   Baked this cake in a loaf pan and initally there was a slight crack in the centre which is quite common when cakes are baked in a loaf pan but I was very pleased when the gap closed up upon cooling.  Perfect to have this for breakfast or for tea as it was moist, soft and full of orange flavour.

    1. Thank you, Angie but I wasn't able to grate the zest from the skin, it was too soft.
