Whole Orange Cake. Mmmmmm

I love orange cake and am always on the lookout for a new recipe that improves on my current one. This is it! I made this cake last week after thinking about the recipe for about a month. Orange cake is a great standby if you have an orange tree in the backyard but even if you buy citrus, try this cake, it's a real delight. You will need a food processor to make it.

On the first day we had this cake hot from the oven with our morning tea. Mmmmmm. The following day I iced the cake with lemon icing and sprinkled it with walnuts. I think we should call the iced cake - with oranges and lemons - St Clement's Cake

Whole Orange Cake


1 whole orange

3 eggs

180 g melted butter (6.3 oz)

1 cup white sugar

1½ cups self raising flour OR 1½ plain (all purpose) flour with 1½ teaspoons baking powder sifted in


  1. Preheat your oven to 180C

  2. Paper and grease your cake tin - I used a ring tin

  3. Wash the orange thoroughly - this is particularly important if the orange is not organic or from your backyard

  4. Cut the orange into quarters, put the whole washed orange into the food processor

  5. Process it until it's completely broken down and no large pieces remain.

  6. Add the rest of the ingredients and process again

  7. Mix together, about another 30 seconds.

  8. Scrape the batter into the prepared cake tin

  9. Cook for around 40 minutes.

This will give you a deliciously moist cake with a full orange flavour.

The best thing is that there is no zesting, juicing, peeling or cutting.
