Sultana and Orange Traybake – Mary Berry’s Baking Bible

Another great traybake recipe from Mary Berry. If you like baking and haven’t already got a copy of Mary Berry’s Baking Bible you really must buy a copy! I now turn to this book first when I feel like baking especially if I don’t have much time to bake. I’m also confident trying new recipes even if I have guests coming over because I know it will turn out well each time. These proved very popular

Ingredients

  • 225g/8oz soft margarine
  • 225g/8oz caster sugar
  • 275g/10oz self-raising flour
  • 2tsp baking powder
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • 275g/10oz sultanas
  • grated rinds of 2 oranges

Topping

  • demerara sugar
  • or 225g icing sugar and 3 tbsp orange juice

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas4. Grease and base line 30 x 23cm/12 x 9in traybake tin with greased greaseproof paper.
  2. Measure all the ingredients except the demerara sugar into a large bowl and beat well for about 2 minutes until well blended.
  3. Turn the mixture into the prepared tin and level the top.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for about 25 minutes then sprinkle the top with demerara sugar and return to the oven for a further 10-15 minutes or until the cake has shrunk from the sides of the tin and springs back when pressed in the centre with your fingertips. Leave to cool in the tin.
  5. If not using demerara sugar topping use 3 tbsps of juice from the oranges and mix with icing sugar to make an orange  glaze icing.
