Orange cake

My sister-in-law recently had a baby and we’re crazy about the little one. I wanted to help make her life a little easier by cooking something for her.
While I won’t share all of those recipes with you guys, I will share this recipe of the orange cake I created for her for my second visit of the baby.

I hope you enjoy it 🙂

  • 150g sugar
