Let’s Get Cooking!

Pre-heat oven to 180˚C, grease and flour a 7-inch cake or bundt pan.

In a small bowl whisk together the flour and baking powder.

In a large bowl beat on low to medium speed (low is best but no higher than medium speed) sugar and eggs until very fluffy and light.  Approximately 5 minutes.

Then add the zest, juice, oil and milk, beat until combined. Then add the flour mixture and beat on low speed until smooth.

Pour into prepared cake pan and bake for approximately 40 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.  Let cool in pan then remove to a cake plate.
