Orange Syrup Cake

This cake is delicious, quick to make and low fat – less than 150 kcals and 1g fat per slice

1.5 cups or 225g plain flour

0.5 cup or 110g caster sugar

2 teaspoons baking powder

grated rind of half a large orange

2 eggs beaten

1 cup or 280g low fat yogurt

2 tablespoons orange juice

1 teaspoon vanilla essence

Orange Syrup:

0.75 cup or 185ml orange juice

1 tablespoon caster sugar

grated rind of half a large orange


Preheat oven to 160 fan forced and grease and line a 2lb or 1kg loaf tin or use a silicone loaf tin – no need to line or grease!

Sift dry ingredients into a large bowl and stir through the orange rind.

Combine eggs, yogurt, juice and vanilla and mix into dry ingredients.

Pour into tin and bake for 45 mins – check that a skewer entered into cake comes out clean if you wish.

After 10 minutes, trun out cake onto a cooling rack and then whilst still warm place onto a plate.

Make the syrup by placing the juice of the orange and the sugar into a pan and heat on low for 5 mins until reduced and syrupy. Then stir in rind.

Make holes in the top of the cake with a skewer and whilst cake is still warm, pour half of the syrup over.

Cut into slices and serve with the remaining syrup. Delicious and guilt-free!
