Whole Orange Cake

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by Redsie

I have made this cake a few times already and everybody loved it! The secret for this cake is that it uses a whole orange (skin and all). If you prefer, you can replace the raisins by dates.

This was pretty good. I enjoyed it. Didn't make the icing this time. Thank you for sharing.
