Orange Fruit Cake with Toffee Sauce
One-Bowl Orange Fruit Cake with Toffee Sauce Makes one large 8" cake Ingredients: 1.5 cups regular flour 1 cup sugar 2 tsp baking powder 1/2 tsp salt 3 eggs at room temperature 1 cup sour cream 1/2 C vegetable oil 2 tsp fresh orange zest 1/2 tsp vanilla extract How I Made It: 1. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. 2. Add eggs, sour cream, oil, orange zest and vanilla to the flour mixture. Using an electric blender on med-low speed, beat for 1 min, until blended. Scrap sides and bottom, beat on med. speed for 1 min. If beating by hand, do it briskly in one direction for about 3-4 mins until well blended and you can't see traces of flour sticking out. 3. Spread batter in greased cake pan or loaf pan. 4. Bake at 350F / 180C for 50-55min. Let cool in the pan for 10mins. 5. Poke holes all over warm cake with a fork and pour the toffee sauce over it. Cool completely before cutting and serving. Store leftover cake in the refrigerate and bring to room temperature or microwave in low heat for 1 min before serving. Toffee Sauce Recipe Makes 1 cup and a bit more Ingredients: 1/2 cup packed brown sugar 1/8 t salt 1/2 cup cream (I use whipping cream) 6 tbsp butter, cut into small pieces 1tsp vanilla extract How to: In a pan, combine sugar, cream, salt and butter. Bring to a boil whisking continuously. Reduce heat and simmer whisking for 2mins till sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat and whisk in the vanilla extract. Let it cool for 5mins or till slightly thickened. Pour over cake while still warm. This sauce can be refrigerated for up to a week and used on any dessert or ice cream of choice. It's delicious and gets it's consistency back by microwaving on low heat or leaving out for 10 mins at room temperature.
