Simple orange cake

This recipe of an orange cake is a fancy dessert you may bake for your regular family evening or present it as a nice treat for your guests. This is the best orange cake recipe for me that you can make fast without spending too much time in the kitchen. You may cook several variations of this cake using suggestions we give you below the basic recipe of orange cake and make your own unique dessert. Using various fillings you may get orange coconut cake or orange poppy seed cake or many other fancy and delicious versions. There are two main types of oranges: sweet oranges and bitter (Seville) oranges. The former can be thick- or thin- skinned, with or without seeds, and has sweet-tasting orange or red-flecked flesh. Bitter oranges have aromatic dimpled skin with very bitter pith and very sour, pale-orange flesh. They always contain seeds. Sweet oranges are widely used in sweet dishes – flavoured with caramel, cinnamon or orange flower water – or as a flavouring for chocolate or rhubarb. Finely grated or julienned orange zest adds a touch of bitterness to cakes and desserts.
