Okay, you win, Alan, orange sponge cake DOES exist :D :lol: ...

Winner's Orange Sponge Cake.jpg

Maybe those long-haired 'lassies' in the Clachaig will bake one for you :think: :lol: :lol:

Ingredients: 3 eggs, separated; 200g (7 oz) caster sugar; 1 tablespoon orange zest; 200g (7 oz) plain flour; 1 dessertspoon baking powder; and 6 tablespoons orange juice.

Preparation method:
1. Preheat oven to 160 C / Gas mark 3. Grease and flour one 23cm (9 in) cake tin.
2. Beat egg yolks, sugar and orange zest until light and fluffy. Mix flour and baking powder together. Alternately add flour mixture and orange juice to the egg yolk mixture.
3. In a separate large clean bowl, with a clean wire whisk or electric beater, beat egg whites to stiff peaks, and fold into batter.
4. Pour batter into prepared tin and bake in preheated oven for 50 to 60 minutes.

Yes, they could do with hairnets....not just to bake a cake :lol:
Mmmmm, get baking before the next meet, that looks as if it would just fit in your rucksack, after all who needs a rucksack full of winter gear...like crampons etc...... :lol:
