Orange Tea Cake


Cake Mix:
1 orange with peel, quartered and seeds removed 
4 eggs
½ cup vegetable oil, plus extra for greasing
1 teaspoon almond extract
1 ½ cup granulated sugar 
2 cups all-purpose flour and extra for dusting
1 tablespoon baking powder 

Orange Glaze: 
1 ½ cup powdered sugar 
1 orange, ½ juice and zest 
1 teaspoon Grand Marnier (optional)


Bundt pan or two 9-inch cake pans


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F.

  2. Combine quartered orange with peel, eggs, vegetable oil, and almond extract in your blender. Firmly secure the lid.

  3. Blend on high speed for 1 minute. Add sugar and blend on high speed for an additional 2 minutes until no large pieces remain. 

  4. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour and baking powder. 

  5. Pour orange mixture into a large bowl, stir in half the flour, mix, then stir in the remaining flour until incorporated. 

  6. Prepare a Bundt pan or 2 9-inch cake pans by lightly spraying with oil and dusting with flour. 

  7. Pour batter into prepared pan(s) and bake 20 to 30 minutes until golden. You will know the cake is fully baked when a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.

  8. In a small bowl, combine glaze ingredients and mix well. 

  9. Remove fully baked cakes from their pans and allow to cool for 10 minutes before generously topping with glaze.
