Mandarin Orange Butter Cake

My mum's last batch of mandarin oranges left after the CNY turning tasteless and dried.   I managed to salvage several fruits to obtain enough of its' juice and flesh to bake this cake.  Cake turns out buttery, soft and moist.

Ingredients
[use 4" x 8" loaf pan]
200 gm butter
130-150 gm castor sugar
1/4 tsp salt
4 eggs
80 ml mandarin orange juice
flesh of 1 mandarin orange - cut small pieces
200 gm cake flour sifted together with 2 tsp baking powder
 
  1. Cream butter with sugar until light and fluffy.  
  2. Add in one egg at a time, beat well after each addition.
  3. Fold in sifted flour in 3 batches alternating with orange juice.
  4. Fold with spatula until well combined.
  5. Pour half batter into a lined [base only] and greased loaf pan [greased and sprinkle some flour all over the sides of pan].  Spread half of the orange flesh over batter, then pour in balance batter.
  6. Spread again orange flesh all over batter.
  7. Bake in preheated oven at 180 degrees C for 40-45 minutes or test with skewer.  Its ready when the skewer comes out clean.

Kimmy, This cake looks good! Not bad lah, you manage to use the leftover Mandarin oranges. I usually end up throwing them when they are all dry and shrunken.

Hi PH, should have baked this cake soon enough. Threw away quite a number cos' they have turned dried and tasteless which is no point to use them for cakes.
