Wholemeal Sponge Cake

Sponge Cake:
175g butter
175g light brown sugar
3 eggs
125g wholemeal flour
50g plain white flour
2 1/4tsp baking powder
1/4 cup full cream milk

Filling/ Icing:
175g icing sugar
75g butter
1 orange

Set oven at 180C.
Grease and base line a two 7'' tins.( I used a square tin to make a one layered cake)
Place margarine and sugar in a bowl and cream together until light and smooth.
Beat the eggs and add to the mixture gradually. beating well between each addition.
Fold in the flour until mixed evenly. Dissolve the baking powder in the milk and fold in to the cake mixture evenly. 
Divide the mixture between the two tins and bake in the oven for 30min or until firm to touch. Remove and cool on wire rack.

To make icing:
sift the icing sugar into a bowl and add the butter. Beat until smooth. Grate the rind of the orange and squeeze the juice. Add to the butter icing and mix well. Spread over the cake and put the remaining cake on top.
( I added the icing on top of my square shaped cake)
