Orange Cake with Berries

Today I want to share with you a beautiful cake recipe: Orange Cake with berries.

Perfect ending to a Sunday dinner or whenever you feel like having a special treat, this cake is quite low in syns (3 1/2 per slice) but bursts with flavour.

There it is: :-)


Serves 12 - 3 1/2 syns per serving

  • 4 eggs
  • 50 gr caster sugar
  • 150 gr self raising flour
  • 5 tbsp sweetener
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • juice of 2 oranges
  • 2 tbsp of grated orange zest
  • berries to serve

  • juice of 2 oranges
  • 1 tbsp arrowroot
  • zest of 2 oranges 
  • 4 tbsp sweetener
  • 90 ml water


  • Preheat the oven at 190 C and line a 20cm baking tray with parchment paper.
  • Separate the eggs.
  • In a bowl mix until thick the egg yolks, flour, sweetener, sugar, baking powder, juice of 2 oranges, and orange zest.
  • In a separate bowl whisk the egg whites until they are softly peaked.
  • Fold them into the rest of the mixture.
  • Spoon the whole mixture into the baking tray and bake in the oven for approx 25/30 mins or till firm to touch.
  • In the meantime prepare the syrup by placing all the ingredients in a saucepan.
  • Bring to boil and continue whisking till thickened.
  • When the cake is fully cooked leave it to cool down in a wire rack for a few minutes.
  • Drizzle the syrup over, cut into slices and serve with berries

It's a gorgeous gooey cake that explodes with orange flavours.  It would be lovely to serve it with raspberries but I didn't have any at home... one more excuse to make it again :-)

Let me know if you make it and what you think,

Till next time
