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
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.
