3/4 cup reduced fat milk
2 teaspoons finely shredded orange peel

Grease and lightly flour a fluted cake tin.
Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl and beat with an electric mixer on low to medium speed for about 60 seconds.
Pour batter into cake tin.
Bake in a 175 degree Celcius oven for 50-55 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted near centre of the cake comes out clean
