2/3 cup softened butter
1 1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 cups all purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
8 oz softened cream cheese
2 tablespoons grated orange zest
3 large eggs (at room temp)
a little sugar to dust (optional)

Preheat the oven and butter and flour a 10 inch sq pan.  Sift the dry ingredients together. Beat the butter, cream cheese and zest until light and creamy. Add the sugar and continue beating until light again. Add the eggs one at a time until just blended. Beat in the dry ingredients and pour the mixture into the baking pan. Bake for about 40/50 min or until a toothpick placed in the centre comes out clean. Cool and turn out on a wire rack to cool completely. Dust with the sugar if you so desire.
