I love things coming out from the oven…especially cakes. This one is another of my favourites. Simple with a great flavour. The nuts add that extra zing. A really nice tea cake. Dinesh loves these kinds of mild flavoured cakes and does’nt mind that extra slice or two.
What’s needed for this orange- nut cake-
1 and 1/2 C plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 C sugar
1 C cashewnuts
3/4 C butter
Chop the orange with everything-rind etc, removing of course the seeds. Add to a blender and puree it. Keep it aside.
Add the cashews to the blender and almost powder it.
Cream the butter and sugar. Beat the eggs and add to the butter-sugar mixture.
Gradually, fold in the flour and baking powder and mix well. Add the cashews and orange puree and blend in.
Pour the mixture in a well greased oven- proof dish and bake in a pre-heated oven at 180 degrees till a toothpick inserted through the middle comes out clean.
