spread some butter in an oven bowl (round or for plum cakes) and sprinkle some flour on it, or cover the oven bowl with tin foil;

After 30 minutes, check with a toothpick if the cake is ready or still liquid.

When ready, turn off the oven but keep the cake inside for around 5 minutes. This will ensure the cake won’t deflate.

Afterwards garnish it with a mix of honey and orange juice to spread on top.
However there are many other ways to decorate it:

  • sugar, orange juice and corn syrup
  • with candied slices of orange
  • orange frosting
  • marmalade


Mescolare bene in una ciotola i seguenti ingredienti, nel seguente ordine:

Prima di tutto, 2  uova e 180 gr zucchero;
125 gr yogurt, 50 gr olio di semi, un pizzico di sale, succo e scorza grattuggiata di un’arancia e mezza;
350 gr farina e una bustina di lievito in polvere;

imburrare e infarinare una teglia da forno (rotonda o da plumcake), o coprirla con uno strato di carta d’alluminio;

versarci dentro il composto e cuocere per 30 min a 180* in un forno precedentemente riscaldato a 200*.

Dopo 30 minuti fare la prova dello stuzzicadenti.

Quando la torta é pronta, spegnere il forno e attendere 5 minuti prima di estrarre il dolce, per evitare che si sgonfi.

Infine decorare con un composto preparato con miele e succo d’arancia.
Tuttavia vi sono molti altri modi per decorare una torta all’arancia, tra cui:

  • zucchero, succo d’arancia e sciroppo di mais
  • con fette d’arancia candite
  • glassa all’arancia
  • marmellata alle arance
