Orange yoghurt cake

Upon my lamentations about being overwhelmed by the oranges from my Farm Fresh green grocer box deliveries, Berrytravel pointed me to Off the Spork's orange yoghurt cake recipe.

While the recipe only calls for 1 whole orange and would hardly put a dent in our current citrus collection, I thought I would give it a whirl. And not surprisingly, Berrytravel baked it the same day I planned to (but I was too exhausted by the end of the day to hand whisk anything).

My photos don't do the recipe justice, as I got lazy with greasing the tin and lining it with baking paper. It was my first try with the recipe and it came out delicious! I was a bit more generous with the orange zest (think a really heaped tablespoon).

Oh, and I scrapped the icing, since it really doesn't need it. The cake is sweet and decadent enough without the extra sugar or flavour.

And I agree with Off the Spork and Berrytravel: the recipe can be done in about an hour. My oven is fan-forced, which will account for the faster cooking time.

Try it!
