May Matters- Day 15- All in one orange cake

Another May Morsel. This time it's an all in one orange cake- if you have a mixer or a blender then , everything kinda gets thrown in the mix- So easy!

You need

1 whole orange
3 eggs
180 g  butter (6.3 oz)
1 cup white sugar /8 oz/ 225 g
1½ cups (12 oz / 340 g) self raising flour OR 1½ plain  (all purpose) flour with 1½ teaspoons baking powder sifted in.
Preheat oven to 180/350. I used a round cake tin, but a bundt tin, or a loaf tin would work too!

Once you gather all your ingredients together, cut up your orange- skin, pith and all.. and throw it in the food processor/ blender/mixer!
Add sugar, butter and eggs. I used cut up butter but many recipes say you can use melted butter- but I was short on time to melt it!
Give it a mix.
Add your flour
and 'voila'- Done.
Bake it for about 35-40 mins,
When it was cool, I added an orange flavoured (Rind and a bit of juice) butter icing on top.
Hope you enjoy:)
 Until tomorrow x


  1. That looks amazing, iced or un-iced. Yum. x

  2. I would gladly have a slice of that right now, its looks so good. I'm going to print out the recipe to try it soon, thanks for sharing.

  3. Oh, my! I totally agree with Paula...Huge craving for it right now!

  4. Yum, that does look good. I've made Nigella's clementine cake where you have to cook the clementines until they're soft but this looks even simpler. And I always like a good thick layer of icing! x

  5. I keep hearing about this cake. I will have to try it sometime, it looks great.

  6. I make a cake just like that, it's so good. Yours looks great.

  7. This looks delicious! I love anything orangey or citrus. Thanks for sharing your recipe :)
