Ingredients

  • 120g softened butter , plus extra for greasing
  • 140g self-raising flour
  • 120g golden caster sugar
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ x 150ml pot natural yogurt
  • zest 1 clementine
  • 3 tbsp orange blossom water
  • icing sugar , to dust

Method

  • STEP 1

    Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Line 10 holes of a muffin tin with cases (or grease some individual cake moulds). Beat the butter, flour, sugar, baking powder, eggs, yogurt, zest and 2 tbsp orange blossom water in a large bowl with an electric whisk until lump-free. Spoon into the cases (or fill cake moulds three-quarters full), and bake for 18-22 mins until golden and risen – a skewer poked in should come out clean (check cake moulds after 15 mins).

  • STEP 2

    Drizzle with remaining orange blossom water while warm, then cool. Dust with icing sugar to serve.
