We copied the recipe for the orange cake from Lady of Leisure....with some variations and instead of one big cake, we used muffin cases.

1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp bicarb soda
1/2 cup 100s and 1000s
Wash orange, cut, discard pits and white thingy in the middle. Chop finely, with skin. Blend with oil, sugar, milk and eggs until fine. Pour into bowl. Mix in sieved flour and baking powder, bit by bit. Spoon into muffin cases. Sprinkle with 100s and 1000s. Bake at 190oC for 20mins.
