This Mimosa Loaf Cake has a delicious orange and Prosecco cake and is decorated using Orange and Prosecco buttercream.

This Mimosa Loaf Cake is the next recipe in my Cocktail Bakes Series this summer. Mimosa is one of the easiest but most delicious cocktails it only consists of two drinks, Prosecco and Orange Juice.

With this loaf cake, I decided to add Prosecco to the cake batter just like with my Pornstar Martini Cupcakes, I also added some orange juice and zest too.

I have become a little bit obsessed with loaf cakes recently, they are just so easy to make and super quick to decorate. I always decorate with buttercream on top just like with my Chocolate and Caramel Loaf Cake and this Chocolate Loaf Cake I made as a guest post.

Mimosa Loaf Cake

To make this loaf cake I greased and lined a 2lb loaf tin and I preheated my oven. This is such an important step.

To grease and line the tin, I coat the bottom and sides in a thin layer of butter and then add my greaseproof paper on top.

Pink Gin Fudge

I started as always by creaming together the butter and sugar until it is pale and creamy. Next, I add in the flour, eggs and baking powder and mix again.

You just need to mix this until the ingredients come together and are smooth. Overbeating the mixture can cause so many problems. Finally, add in the Prosecco, Orange Juice and Orange zest and mix again until they are fully incorporated.

The mixture should be slightly wet but don’t worry this is just because of the prosecco and orange it will still bake perfectly.

Pour the mixture into your loaf tin and bake in the oven.

How Do I know the Cake is Baked?

There are a few different ways to tell if your cake is ready. The first is by gently pressing the top of the cake if it springs back when you remove your finger then it is ready, if not pop it back into the oven for 3-4 minutes and repeat.

You can also use a cake tester to test the thickest part of the cake if the tester comes out clean then the cake is baked, if the tester has cake mix on it pop the cake back into the oven for 3-4 minutes and repeat until the skewer comes out clean.

Once the cake is baked, leave it too cool in the tin for 15-20 minutes before transferring it to a wire rack to cool fully.

Buttercream Decoration

While the cake is cooling make the buttercream. I started by mixing together the butter and icing sugar until combined and smooth. It will be super thick but don’t worry.

Split the mixture into two bowls, to one of the bowls add the Prosecco and to the other add the orange juice. I also added a small amount of orange food colouring to the orange buttercream.

Put the mixture into the piping bag, I find the easiest way to do this is to put a small amount of one buttercream on one side of the bag and the other buttercream on the other, build it up slowly until all your buttercream is in the piping bag.

I used a Wilton 1M Piping Tip and these piping bags. You can pipe the buttercream on in any way you want, I find it easiest just to

When you squeeze the piping bag, you might find that you just get one colour to start with but that is fine just keep squeezing and eventually you will get both colours.

I finished the cake off with some sprinkles.

Alternatives

You could make these into cupcakes if you prefer just reduce the ingredients down to 150g and 3 large eggs. Bake them in the oven for 15-20 minutes.
