Orange and Wattleseed Butter Cake

This recipe is adapted from our friends at Gourmet Nation and makes a delicious, fluffy cake. We love the combination of our Ground Wattleseed (high in protein and iron) and orange.

  1. Cream butter, essence and sugar in a small bowl with an electric mixer until light and fluffy.
  2. Beat in eggs one at a time, beat until combined.
  3. Divide mixture in half in two separate bowls.
  4. To one of the bowls add 1 tbsp of wattleseed,  ¾ cup of flour and ¼ cup of milk.  Mix till combined.
  5. To the other bowl, add ¾ cup of flour, rind from one orange and ¼ cup of milk or orange juice. Mix till combined.
  6. Spoon mixture into prepared tin – greased and lightly floured – alternating mixtures.
  7. Gently stir a knife through the mixture to  give a swirl effect.
  8. Bake in 180 C oven for approximately 40 mins.
  9. Sprinkle with icing sugar if you desire!
