Microwave Orange Cake with Fresh juice and Rind

My family enjoyed the microwave chocolate cake I made so much I just had to try an orange cake version too so I prepared this Microwave Orange Cake with Fresh juice and Rind.  The boys and I then decorated it in white chocolate ganache and funfetti sprinkles.

Ingredients
1 1/2 cup cake flour
4 tsp baking powder
1 cup sugar
A crack of sea salt
2 eggs
1/4 cup oil
1/2 cup hot warm water
1/2 cup orange juice
Rind of 2 oranges

Method:
Whisk together the dry ingredients then form a well in the center.
Add the eggs and fold closed.
Add the oil, water, orange juice and whisk well to combine.
Pour into a greased microwave bowl and cook on high for 7 mins.
Once cooking time is up, leave in the microwave for a min or 2 before removing.
Flip onto a serving plate and decorate as desired.
