Orange Cake

I’ve always been intrigued by cakes using whole citrus fruit in the batter, wondering if the bitter pith will turn the cake into an inedible mess. This is a cake for the non-dessert lover, or for the dessert lover of all things tangy. It involves tossing whole oranges in a blender. The result: a moist, delectable cake that tastes like marmalade. Perfect for breakfast or a snack for kids tiffins.
