    @Shirley Martin
    Here is the orange cake recipe you asked about

    I cut this recipe out of a Australian Woman’s Weekly book dated May 1990

    125gm ( 4.4 ounces ) soft butter
    3/4 cup castor sugar
    1. Tablespoon grated orange rind
    2. Eggs
    1.1/2 cups self raising flour ( not sure what you call SR flour )
    1/3 cup orange juice
    1/2 cup milk
    Optional ..2 tablespoons of poppy seeds

    Cream butter and sugar ,
    add eggs and grated orange rind ..mix well.
    Add OJ and milk
    Add sifted flour mix well ..only mix with mixer long enough to combine all ingredients
    Stir in poppy seeds if using
    Place in paper lined / greased cake pan and cook on moderate oven for 50 mins depending on your oven
    Cool in tin for 1/2 hour before turning out onto wire rack
    Nice moist cake ,ice with orange icing if liked

    I got it, @Kate Ellery . I printed it. What is castor sugar? Can I use regular sugar instead?

    It sure sounds good.

    May be the same @Shirley Martin i use my NutriBullet to make my own castor sugar from standard sugar
    They recommend CS cause its better / quicker when creaming butter and sugar
    If you have a kitchen whizz make your own

    I think it's the same thing, Kate. I use it mixed with cream cheese and other things to make frosting and other desserts.
