I was flipping through a magazine (thank you airline miles freebie) and saw this recipe. I immediately tore out the page and recycled the rest. We happen to have a Costco sized box of oranges in the garage, and I knew it would make the perfect breakfast dessert.
I was right.
Loaded with orange flavor, tender flecks of peel; moist and not too sweet.
This one's going on my Pinterest board.
There will be Whole Orange Cake again in our future.
Whole Orange Cake
1 cup butter, softened
1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
3 large eggs, room temperature
2 whole oranges
*ends trimmed, cut into chunks,
seeded and processed in a food processor
(skin and all!)
until mostly smooth but not pureed*
2 1/2 cups flour
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
2 TBSP plus 1 tsp orange juice
Preheat oven to 350 F.
Coat a 10-cup bundt pan with oil spray.
In a large bowl mixer on medium speed, beat butter and sugar until fluffy. Beat in eggs. Add 1 1/2 cups pureed whole orange mixture to batter and mix until blended. Add dry ingredients and mix until smooth. Spread batter in prepared pan.
Bake about 50-55 minutes.
Cool pan for 10 minutes then invert pan to remove cake.
Invert cake onto plate and drizzle with glaze.
Let the glaze set then slice the cake.
