  • 2 cups all purpose Flour
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 1/3 cups Sugar
  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted Butter, softened
  • 3 large Eggs
  • Grated zest from 3 oranges
  • 1/2 cup freshly squeezed Orange juice
  • 1/4 cup Water
  • For the Frosting 
  • 1/4 cup (half a stick) Butter, softened
  • 2 cups Confectioners’ (icing) Sugar
  • 3 Tablespoons Milk
  • 2 Tablespoons unsweetened Cocoa powder

  • Preheat the oven to 350F (180C). Grease an 11 x 7-inch baking dish.
  • Sift together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
  • Beat the sugar and softened butter until creamy. Add the eggs one at a time beating after each addition.
  • Adjust the speed to low and alternately add the flour and the fresh orange juice mixed with water scraping the sides with a spatula if necessary. Beat just until combined. Fold in the grated zest.
  • Spoon the batter into the prepared baking dish.
  • Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean about 35-45 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack and cool the cake completely in the baking dish.
  • To make the frosting, mix the butter and sugar on low speed. Add the milk slowly and continue to mix until smooth. Spoon half of the mixture into a bowl. Add the cocoa powder and stir to combine.
  • Spoon the cocoa powder mixture and the plain mixture next to each other (alternately) on top of the cake. Use a knife to make a swirling pattern. Refrigerate until frosting has set.
