About this recipe: A very moist and fruity cake that uses the whole orange for its amazing flavour. Cooking the oranges twice makes the skin less bitter.
Hi There! It's my 1st try and I am excited. I boiled the oranges for one hour, drained and reboiled them for 45 minutes. When I pureed them in blender, the puree is extremely bitter. So, I was wondering whether or not to proceed with the rest of the recipe? Is it normal for puree to be bitter and it will vanish with sugar, eggs, almond and baking? Or, if your puree is tasting nice and sweet, then only you should proceed with the rest of the procedure. Pls reply quickly.... Thanks, - 23 Feb 2013 (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
I've made this a few times, cake and muffins. The muffins are the most popular as they slip easily into lunch boxes, the kid's and the husband's lunch boxes! I don't know if they freeze well, and probably never will, as they don't last long enough to need freezing! - 02 Aug 2011 (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
Absolutely loved this recipe. My partner loved it too. Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful recipe. This was the very first cake I have ever made from scratch (I normally use a cake packet mix), so I was very proud of the way it turned out. I will continue to find receipes that don't come out of a packet. Thanks so much!!! - 27 Jun 2012 (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
