The use of oranges in cakes is gaining popularity with great recipes such as chocolate orange cake, almond orange cake and flourless orange cake.
For a newbie cook, this is a very easy orange cake made from scratch.
To make this classic Greek citrus cake, filo pastry is shredded and mixed with an orange filling then baked.
A very moist and fruity cake that uses the whole orange for its amazing flavour. Cooking the oranges twice makes the skin less bitter.
This quick orange cake is delicious even without the icing. I sometimes just sprinkle icing sugar on the top. This recipe can be used to make two 20cm cake layers or a 23x13cm loaf. If making a loaf cake, bake for 60 minutes.
Orange flower water provides the beautiful orange taste in this traditional Greek cake called Revani. Don't skip the syrup cos that is what really makes the cake but you can reduce the sugar in the cake by up to 1/4 cup (60g) if you want a less sweeter cake.
