Whole Orange Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting
Some old friends came to dinner and this is the dessert I served. I just love this cake because it's not just extra easy to make but it's so moist and just down right Yummy. Also you only dirty a couple of things when making it.
I adapted this recipe from here
1 whole orange, peel and all
12 TBL butter, melted
1 cup super fine sugar **
1 1/2 cups self-rising flour
**if you don't have superfine sugar, put it in your processor and pulse several times until it becomes fine, be careful it does make dust.
Preheat oven to 350. Grease and flour a tube pan or bundt pan.
Process the whole orange in food processor until well pureed. Add all the other ingredients and process until well combined. Pour into prepared pan. Bake for 35-40 minutes until golden brown and toothpick comes out clean. Cool cake in pan for about 5-10 minutes then run a knife around edges and remove. Let the cake cool completely before frosting. If you have any cake left, store in refrigerator because of the cream cheese.
For the frosting
1 cup Cream cheese softened
1 stick butter, unsalted, soft
1 1/2 cup Confectionery Sugar
2 tsp Orange zest
1/2 tsp. vanilla
Cream the butter and cream cheese until smooth, add powdered sugar 1/2 cup at a time, mix until blended. Add the zest and vanilla, mix until well combined.
