Free Recipe from Down to Earth by Rhonda Hetzel, Whole Orange Cake, page 294.
This is one of the easiest cakes you’ll ever make and it’s full of flavour and orangey goodness. It’s all mixed in the food processor too, so there is very little washing up. Simple!
(Wash the orange thoroughly, particularly if it’s not organic or from your backyard.)
1 orange, washed and quartered
180 g butter, melted
1 cup white sugar
1 1/2 cups self-raising flour or 1 1/2 cups plain flour and 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- Preheat your oven to 180°C and grease cake tin – I use a large loaf tin.
- Put the orange quarters into the food processor and process until they’re completely broken down and no large pieces remain.
- Add the rest of the ingredients and process again for about 30 seconds, or until everything is mixed together.
- Scrape the batter into the tin and bake for around 40 minutes or until the cake is golden brown, and a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean. Cool on a cake rack.
Our good friend Leah from Instyle Web Design sent us the above sensational pic of her baked-to-perfection version. “I just added the glaze. Mix a little icing sugar with some milk, and drizzle over the cake. Delicious!”
