For the cake

2 eggs

1 cup sugar

Finely grated rind 2 large oranges

½ cup orange juice

3 teaspoons baking powder

1½ cups plain flour

125g butter melted

Place all in a bowl and beat for 2 minutes with an electric beater.
Pour into a 20cm round cake tin that has been greased and the base lined with baking paper. Bake at 160 degrees for approximately 40 minutes or until a metal skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean.

Leave in tin for 5 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack for at least 20 minutes to cool slightly.

To make the honey-orange glaze:

Place ¾ cup orange juice and 1 rounded teaspoon honey in a small saucepan. Bring to the boil, stirring, then cook over medium heat until reduced by one third.
Place the cake on a plate. Insert a skewer into it in several places, then pour over the glaze.
