1big orange(unpeeled, cut into 4 wedges, seeds removed)
1 2/3cupsgranulated sugar
2cupsall purpose flour
1orange (about 4 tbsp of juice + zest)
For the orange cake
Preheat oven to 350ºF (180ºC). Spray a 9x3 inches (23x8 cm) Bundt pan with oil and flour it.
In a blender add the orange wedges, oil and eggs. Blend it until smooth.
Open the blender and add the sugar. Blend it a little more, until well mixed and no pieces of orange are left.
Pour the mixture into a bowl and, with a whisk, mix half of the flour and baking powder. When they are almost incorporated, but you can still see them, add the rest of the flour and baking powder, and mix it until just incorporated. Don't overmix it, so the cake won't be tough.
Pour the batter in the prepared pan, and bake it for approximately 30 minutes, or until top is golden and springy. A tooth pick inserted should come out clean, with just a few crumbs stuck to it. Wait for it to get warm before removing from pan.
Zest and juice one orange (about 4 tbsp of juice). Add 1 cup of powdered sugar and mix it with a small whisk or spoon. Pour it over the cake.Enjoy!
