This morning I went out for a walk. It was a lovely sunny mrning, un spite of being the 8th of November, because I’m fortunate enough to live in the south of Spain.
The trees are full of oranges, low enough to pick! However, most of them are the bitter ones for making the famous ‘Seville Orange Marmalade’.
Yesterday, one of my best friends, Gabriela, gave some sweet oranges from her garden.
And this afternoon I made an orange cake for tea! It’s a really simple and delicious recipe which I’d like to share with you.
These are the ingredients: 3 eggs, one whole, Spanish orange, 70ml of olive oil, 100gms of sugar, 250 gms self raising flour and a pinch of salt. That’s it!
First put the eggs, oil, sugar and orange (washed, seeded and roughly cut) in a blender.
And this is what happens!
Then put the mixture into a bowl and gradually add the flour.
Until it’s all combined and you put the mixture into a greased tin.
40 minutes later at 180° this is what you get!
A delicious orange cake. I wish you could smell it. It’s like having an orange tree in the house!
Now the best part. Make a cup of tea or coffee and share it with someone you love or just eat it yourself!
Go ahead, spoil yourself it’s quick, easy, healthy and delicious. And you don’t have to eat it all on one day. It’s even more delicious tomorrow and the day after.
