Orange cake!! No eggs? Not a problem..

Sometimes…..(ok many times) we want a slice of cake…. not a fancy one or full of creams and toppings. Just a simple, delicious, comforting  fluffy cake to have with a cup of tea or coffee( coffee for me please :b  ).

This time I decided to bake an orange cake. Its soooo good.



This recipe is a little bit different than usual because I didn´t use eggs.

Why?? Because here we have a dairy and eggs intolerance, so 99% of the time I bake without this. In your case…imagine you really want a cake but no eggs left… so this is a great recipe to try out.

A plus… you use the whole orange…. yes, skin too 🙂

Look at this…. yummy!!!


Here are the ingredients:

  • 3 cups of flour ( plain)
  • 2 cups of sugar ( I used brown, feel free to use what you have)
  • 1 whole orange ( biger size)
  • 1/2 cup of oil
  • 1/4 cup of  boiling water
  • 1 tablespoon of baking powder

How to:

1-Pre-heat the oven at 180ºc.

2-Butter a cake pan ( I like with a hole in the middle) and set aside.

3-Peel the orange skin  and reserve.

4-Take the white parte away from the orange and discard .

5-Put the orange and the skin in a blender with the oil and blend!!! Blend, blend until its smooth.

6-Put the mixture in a bowl,  add the sugar and with a mixer…. whisk until the sugar is dissolved.

7- Add the flour and the baking powder and whisk again until you have a uniform batter.

8- Add the boiling water and whisk until it´ts all smooth.

9- Pour into the pan and ready to the oven for about 40m.( Please check with a toothpick or a raw Spaghetti).

And voila… a nice and delicious cake just in time for  coffee.


Hope you like it as much as we did.
