If you can start the day without caffeine; If you can get going without pep pills; If you can always be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains; If you can resist complaining and boring people with your troubles; If you can eat the same food every day and be grateful for it; If you can understand when your loved ones are too busy to give you any time; If you can forgive a friend's lack of consideration; If you can overlook it when those you love take it out on you when, through no fault of your own, something goes wrong; If you can take criticism and blame without resentment; If you can ignore a friend's limited education and never correct him; If you can resist treating a rich friend better than a poor friend; If you can face the world without lies and deceit; If you can conquer tension without medical help; If you can relax without liquor; If you can sleep without the aid of drugs; If you can honestly say that deep in your heart you have no prejudice against creed or color, religion or politics; then, my friend, you are almost as good as your dog.

- Heat the oven to 170C/Gas 3. You will need a 30 cm cake tin with removable sides, well-greased with butter.
- Cream butter and sugar well, until it is very pale and thick - this will take quite a while.
- Add the eggs one by one, beating well after each addition, and the zest, if using. Add the flour all at once, and beat well, then slowly add the orange juice, until it is incorporated.
- Pour the batter into the prepared cake tin, and bake for 1 hour and 10 minutes - or until an inserted skewer comes out clean.
