Method

45-50 min
 
Preheat the oven to 180 ºC. Spray and line two 20 cm loose-bottomed cake tins with baking paper. Sift together all the dry ingredients and sugar. Beat the egg yolks, butter and milk together and stir into the dry ingredients along with the orange juice, rind and poppy seeds. Beat the egg whites until soft peaks are formed and carefully fold into the batter. Divide the batter evenly between the two prepared tins and bake for about 45-50 minutes or until done. Turn out the cakes and cool on wire racks. Beat together all the ingredients for the icing until light and fluffy. Sandwich the two cake layers together with the icing and decorate the top of the cake with the remaining icing. Sprinkle with poppy seeds. Makes a double-layer cake.
