Whole Orange Cake

It is called a Whole Orange Cake because the entire Orange is used. Perfect for any occasion, but such a highlight with a cup of tea or coffee.

A delicious yet straightforward cake to whip up when you need a last minute lunchbox snack or afternoon tea for guests.

This is one of the go-to cake recipes that I have used for years. It is so quick and easy and more importantly, super moist and tasty!!!

This can be frozen and thawed for an easy afternoon tea or for school lunchboxes.

Whole Orange Cake Recipe


➲3 eggs
➲1 ¹/₄ cups OR (250g) sugar
➲1 ³/₄ cups OR (275g) all-purpose flour
➲2 ¹/₂ tsp baking powder
➲¹/₃ cups OR (100g) butter, softened
➲¹/₃ cups OR (110g) plain Greek yogurt
➲1 large organic orange, washed and cut into pieces (with the rind, but remove the seeds) weighing about 300g

Procedure to make the whole orange cake

Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C)

Prepare an 8″ springform pan by spraying with oil (or butter) and lining in parchment paper (sides optional, if you want really clean sides), then spray the paper, too.

Place the sugar and eggs in a large bowl and beat with a mixer until light and fluffy.

Sift the flour with the baking powder then add to the mixture in the bowl a little at a time along with the softened butter. Continue to mix until thoroughly blended, then stir in the yogurt.

In a food processor, process the whole orange until it is almost pureed. 

Add this orange to the cake mixture and stir until evenly combined, then put the batter into the prepared tin.

Bake for 50-60 minutes (depending on your oven), but test with a cake tester or skewer to make sure the orange cake is done before removing from the oven. Allow to cool for about 15 minutes, then remove the side of the springform pan.

Yes, it’s hard to wait, but the moist orange cake will cut more easily if it’s cool first.
