my new favourite cake recipe

Yesterday on one of my favourite blogs was this recipe for an easy orange cake.
As oranges are in season at the moment and I got a box at 69c a kilo the other day at the fruit and veg I thought I may as well try this cake.
It is made using a whole orange and the food processor- too easy!

Yesterday I made it and just dusted it with icing sugar. 
It was so yummy that I made another one today.
Today I was a little bit more fancy and iced it with an orange butter icing and even made some candied peel to go on top.
I was feeling a little bit Masterchef after watching Donna Hay on there last night!

 I have never made this before but as I was about to make some lemon butter I noticed the recipe on the opposite page and thought I would give it a go.
I think next time I make this I might make a chocolate ganache to go on top. 
Orange and chocolate together are one of my favourite food combos!

 As we have heaps of lemons at the moment courtesy of our tree I thought I would also make a lemon version. 
I added 1/2 cup extra sugar to sweeten it a little more. 
It too was delicious - it is a lovely moist cake.
I now have plans to make candied lemon slices to grace some further cakes.

Some lemon with your tea, dear?
