    Demelza's Note:

    This recipe is adapted from one in Baking A Common Sense Guide. I have made a few minor changes to it. I bake it in a greased 8" silicone bundt pan, but the original recipe said to bake it in an 8" round cake pan. You can mix this up with just a whisk & silicone or rubber spatula. Dust it lightly with some powdered sugar or drizzle an orange glaze over it. I served it with a spoonful of whipped cream & some fresh blackberries. It would be nice with blueberries or strawberries as well. I hope you enjoy it.

      Finally, a simple all-natural orange cake that actually tastes of oranges!

      I used the zest of two large navel oranges instead of an orange and a lemon because it took two oranges to yield 1/2 cup of fresh juice.

      I also used my immersion blender to process the zest with the sugar so the sugar gets infused with the orange oil and makes for a more intense orange flavor than just adding the zest alone.

      When I want something traditionally Spanish/North African I replace half the flour with ground almonds and almost always add a teaspoon of good French brandy just to add some depth.

      I cook this in a large gratin dish and serve it plain, though I bet it would be delicious with a pillow of cardamom-scented softly whipped cream.

      I found this recipe very simple and yet delicious. It took me less time to bake it than what is stated.

      I made this cake using all ruby red grapefruit rind and juice. The taste was excellent (and not too sweet). I will definitely be making this again. Thanks so much for posting!
