Rhonda's Whole Orange Cake

I can't believe I haven't shared this recipe's so very, very easy, moist and delicious. I don't have an orange tree like Rhonda but often get organic citrus fruit from Mum and Dad's neighbour, Steve.

I used...
1 whole orange, roughly chopped
2 eggs and 1 large tablespoon of plain yogurt
180gms of softened/melted butter
almost 1 cup of raw sugar
1 1/2 cups of plain wholemeal flour
1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder.

Into my almost vintage food processor(or you could finely chopped the orange and mix everything in by hand)
went the orange, process it until there are no big pieces left and then add everything else. Note to self...make sure you remember the butter that is in the microwave oven!

Pour the batter into a lined or well-greased loaf tin and bake at 180C for about 40minutes. You could ice this cake for a special occasion but it is so lovely and moist that it's really not necessary.

Eat and enjoy, it also freezes very well if it lasts that long ;)

I went to Burswood again yesterday, the Christmas decorations are magnificent and we had a really fantastic Christmas's Mum and Dad dwarfed by the tree and reindeer...Mum didn't like these decorations...the strings of lights reminded her of barbed wire :(

Joe is having a cortisone injection in his elbow today to see if that will help with his pain, he then has an appointment at 7.45am tomorrow with his specialist...can you imagine this marvellous doctor starts seeing patients at 6am?????

Love from Sue


  1. Mum's had a number of cortisone injections in various places for pain relief from arthritis. She's found them very effective. Tell Joe it might take a couple of days to kick in though, so not to worry if he doesn't feel any benefit at all until then.

  2. Thanks for that, Love...that's exactly what he was told at the clinic...I truly think he may need it in his neck though...time will tell.
    Was it Ann McGuiggan(sp?) who had the day-care on Lordsome Rd? The last house on "my" side of the street??
