Ingredients

Cake:

  • 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 eggs room temperature
  • 1 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 1/4 tsp orange zest
  • 1 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda

Orange Syrup:

  • 1/2 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice

Cardamom Whipped Cream

  • 475 ml whipping cream
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cardamom powder

Garnish (optional)

  • 1/4 tsp orange zest
  • 10-12 pistachios sliced

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 325 degrees C and line two 9 inch cake panswith parchment paper at the bottom. Grease the cake pans and set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl add the oil, sugar and eggs and whip until well combined. Add the orange juice and zest and mix again. Add the flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda and mix just until everything is incorporated. Divide the cake batter into the two cake pans and bake for 30-35 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely.
  • While the cake is in the oven, add all the ingredients for the orange syrup in a saucepan and cook on medium heat for 5-7 minutes until the sugar has melted and the syrup has thickened slightly. Remove the cakes from the tins and pour the orange syrup evenly over the surface of both cakes.
  • To make the whipping cream, pour the chilled cream in a large mixing bowl. Add the sugar and cardamom powder and whip with a hand mixer until it is light and fluffy.
  • To assemble the cake, spread half of the whipped cardamom cream over the first cake layer. Place the second cake on top and spread the remaining whipped cream on top. Garnish with sliced pistachios and orange zest. Enjoy!
