  • 200 g Margarine
  • 300 g Caster Sugar
  • 200 g Almond Yoghurt
  • 4 Medium Oranges juiced and zested
  • 2 Teaspoons Vanilla Extract
  • 400 g Self Raising Flour
  • 2 Teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Salt


  • Preheat your oven to 200˚c/390˚f (fan oven).
  • Use a whisk to cream together the 200g margarine and 300g caster sugar in a large mixing bowl. Then pour in the 200g of almond yoghurt, 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract and mix until incorporated. Don't worry if the mixture looks split - it will come together when we mix in the dry ingredients.
  • Pour in 200ml of the orange juice into the bowl and stir.
  • Tip in the 400g self raising flour, 2 teaspoons of baking powder, orange zest and 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Whisk into a smooth batter.
  • Grease a 13 inch x 7 inch baking tin with margarine. Then pour in the cake batter. Place into the oven and bake for 40 minutes or until a knife stuck in the centre comes out clean.
  • Remove and allow your cake to cool completely before serving. This cake gets better with age and tastes best after refrigerating for 24 hours.
