A quick and easy moist loaf cake. Try swapping the orange zest and amaretto for the zest of 1 or 2 lemons and 2 tablespoons of freshly squeezed lemon juice.

Prep time 30 minutes

Cook time 45 minutes

Makes 1 9x5inch loaf or three mini loaves

6 servings


170 grams butter

190 grams plain flour

1 tsp salt

360 grams curd cheese

360g sugar

3 large eggs

1 tsp vanilla extract

Zest of one orange

2 tbs amaretto

· Preheat the over to 170C/350F

· Grease well a 9x5x3 inch loaf tin

· Combine the flour, baking powder and salt

· Cream the butter, curd cheese, sugar for about 3 minutes

· Add the eggs one at a time, with the mixer still turned on

· Add the vanilla, orange zest and amaretto until combined

· Fold in the dry ingredients, a small amount at a time, until just incorporated

· Pour into the tin and bake until a sharp knife comes out clean and the cake comes away from the edge of the tin. About 45-50 minute. If the top is picking up too much colour before the cake is cooked, cover with a piece of foil.

· Leave to cool on a cooling tray in the tin for 10 minutes and then remove to allow it to cool completely.
