    Um Safia's Note:

    Here is the recipe for our orange (or lime) & coconut sponge cake. It is a moist, light, orange / lime flavoured sponge with just a hint of coconut. It keeps well in an airtight container for a week & can be frozen before icing (it freezes very well). This recipe is simple to make & not time consuming at all.

    Decoration

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Cream the margarine and the sugar until light and fluffy. Whisk the eggs into the sugar/margarine mixture.
    2. 2
      Slowly add the flour (sieved), baking powder, orange zest and coconut. Stir in a figure of 8 fashion.
    3. 3
      Gradually add enough water to loosen the cake mix up a bit. It should be the consistency of a slightly thin custard.
    4. 4
      Pour into a non stick cake tin, preferably with loose bottom. I use an 8'' round tin for this cake.
    5. 5
      Bake on a middle/top shelf in the oven at 180 c for around 45 mins or until a skewer comes out clean.
    6. 6
      Remove from tin and cool on wire rack. Once cooled, top with the icing or dust with icing sugar.
    7. 7
      To make the icing, beat the margarine with the sugar & enough of the juice to form a spreadable icing. Cover the top of the cake & decorate with the jelly slices & dragees / silver balls.

      I can't believe no-one has tried this recipe so far! It's delicious!!! I made it for my mum's 50th & everyone (even my pro-baker grandmother!) raved, raved, raved!!! I doubled the recipe for two layers & used Karen=^..^='s Orange Buttercream Frosting (rec#42665) to fill & ice. It was so moist & tasted devine! I loved the subtle coconut kick! I only had half the oranges to use so added in a dash each of lemon & lime juice to compensate for some of the missing rind & had to sub some oil for a bit of the butter but it didn't seem to impair it in any way. The cake was quite dense though - more like a fruit cake than a sponge but it was still so soft & moist & soo sooo tasty!! Really simple recipe to follow - & well worth the effort!! It was exactly what I was looking for - Thank you!!
