  • ½ cup softened butter
  • 2 large eggs
  • cups All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons Finely grated tangerine zest
  • cup tangerine juice fresh from the fruit
  • ½ cup sour cream


  • 4 tablespoons tangerine juice fresh from the fruit
  • ½ cup granulated sugar


  • Preheat the oven to 350ºF/180ºC
  • Prepare a loaf pan by greasing it with butter.
  • in a large mixing bowl, beat together the eggs, flour, sugar, butter, baking powder, zest, sour cream, and juice until smooth.
  • Fill the pan evenly with the batter.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for about 20-30 mins, or until golden brown and a cake tester comes out clean.
  • Leave to cool 5 minutes in the pan.
  • While the cake is cooling in the pan, mix together the juice of three tangerines and 1/2 cup of sugar to make the drizzle.
  • While the cake is still warm, transfer to a wire rack and prick the warm cake all over with a skewer and then pour over the drizzle – the juice will sink into the cake and the sugar will form a lovely, crisp topping.
  • Leave to cool 5 minutes in the pan before transferring to a wire wrack.
