Orange Pound Cake

My kids told me at the very last minute that my SIL and her boys will be coming over in the late afternoon as they want to play soccer.  As my nephews like to eat cake, I "quick hand quick leg" gather all the ingredients I could find in my cupboard and came out with an orange butter pound cake.

Despite being done in a hurry and a burned cake top *red face* (cos I lost track of the timing) this cake still tasted wonderfully good. (^.^) The orange juice and zest gave the pound cake a nice smell and it very moist. :) 

Recipe for pound cake:-
250g butter
100g sugar
(I reduced the sugar to 70g, but still too sweet for me)

cake flour
1 tsp baking powder
4 large eggs

1/3 cup orange juice
1 tsp orange zest

Whisk butter, sugar, cake flour & baking powder @ med speed for 1 min.
2. Add in eggs gradually, 1 at a time and whisk at med speed for 5 mins till smooth.
3. Add orange juice and blend well at slow speed
4. Add orange zest and mix well.
5. Pour batter into a baking pan.

6. Bake in a preheated oven of 170C for 40 mins. (need to watch as the top may get burned)
