This is a very simple cake made in the food processor. The citrus flavours from the whole orange used and the delicious glaze are really lovely!




  • 1 thin skinned orange
  • 190g melted butter
  • 1 ½ cups self raising flour
  • 1 ½ cups sugar
  • 3 eggs

Orange Glaze

  • 1 ½ – 2 cups icing sugar
  • Juice of 1/2 – 1 orange



  • Preheat the oven to 180°C. Line the bottom of 22cm round springform tin with baking paper and grease the sides with butter.
  • Cut the orange, including the skin, into small segments. Discard any pips and place the segments into a food processor. Process until finely chopped.
  • Add butter, flour, sugar and eggs to the food processor and process again until well mixed.
  • Pour the mixture into the tin and bake for 35-40 minutes, or until the cake is cooked.
  • Allow to cool and remove from the tin to prepare for the icing.

Icing Method

  • Add 1 ½ cups of the icing sugar to a clean bowl and then add the juice of ½ an orange. Keep adding small amounts of extra icing sugar and extra orange juice, as needed to create an icing thick enough to spread with a knife, or whatever consistency you prefer.
  • Ice the cake and sprinkle with orange zest or leave plain.
