I wanted to make a treat yesterday, but didn’t know what I wanted. So, my first stop was to Rhonda’s blog, down—to—earth. She never disappoints! Time and time again I can look through her posts and I find something. And yesterday I found the jackpot of all simple treats! She had a recipe for Whole Orange Cake. However, I had no oranges in the house. But I did have a few lemons and decided to adjust the recipe buy using a lemon. I think I may have found a new family favorite!
INGREDIENTS1 whole orange3 eggs6.3 oz melted butter1 cup white sugar1½ cups self raising flour OR 1½ plain (all purpose) flour with 1½ teaspoons baking powder sifted inMETHODPreheat your oven to 180C/350F.Grease your cake tinWash the orange/lemon thoroughly – this is particularly important if the orange/lemon is not organic or from your backyardPut the whole washed orange/lemon into the food processor and process it until it’s completely broken down and no large pieces remain. Add the rest of the ingredients and process again until everything is mixed together, about 30 seconds.Scrape the batter into the cake tin and cook for around 40 minutes.
