Tips to get it Right
- Use sweet ripe orange, not bland or unripe orange.
- Don’t use orange with seeds, either buy seedless orange or pick the seeds and discard them.
- If your orange has thick skin with lots of the white part it’s better to peel it and make the recipe without the skin.
- Blend the ingredients just to combine, don’t blend too long, just enough for the orange to be blended through.
This recipe might not be the best for you if…
- Using this very simple method and you’re looking for a cake with similar texture like Victoria sponge cake or extra soft type of cake.
- You don’t like the natural bitterness of freshly squeezed orange juice.
If you’re up for putting the extra work and whisking your cake, then you might want to check out my Clementine Loaf Cake recipe. It’s a simple recipe that only requires one additional task, whisking, and the result is guaranteed delicious with soft texture cake.
If you want to make it orange flavour, only change 3 clementine zest to 2 orange zest for the cake. If you want to go a bit further, make the sticky sauce also (you’ll not regret it). Replace clementine zest and juice with orange zest and juice.
