“Black is too morbid; red will set them on edge; pink is too juvenile; orange is freakish”- Lauren Oliver

Yes this Whole orange blender cake is not only freakishly simple to stir up, but also very orangey and yummy. With luscious oranges in season now and showing up from round the globe, I decided to hop on to the blender cake trend and tried a couple of recipes. With some tweaks this one just fit the bill. All you need is some very easily available at home ingredients, an orange, a blender, a loaf tin or any baking tin, some time and patience. 

As we know Orange is packed with vitamin C, but did you know that the orange peel is a powerhouse of essential nutrients? The orange peels are rich in folate vitamin B6, fiber and calcium. The essential oil in the peel is filled with anti-inflammatory properties that can boost your immunity.

The skin of the orange is textured, bitter and is considerably hard, which can cause discomfort while consuming and digestion. The best and most common way of consuming these peels in your diet is by consuming it in cooked form. Check out this Dark chocolate brownie with walnuts and candied orange peels recipe from the blog. 

For this recipe I have used navel Orange from Egypt, they were very sweet and juicy on their own.( It was a tough choice, pop it in your mouth or the blender, well I had to do both)

Since we are going to incorporate whole orange in this batter, you will need to keep in mind few things:

1. Wash the orange properly with hot water to get rid of harmful pesticides.

2. Use fresh , juicy oranges as the peel will be softer.

3. Cut the orange in quarters and pull out seeds if any. Inclusion of seed while blending the batter may give a bitter aftertaste. 

4. Do not blend the ingredients for more than 20-30 seconds. Over blending will release the oils from the peel and you may end up with a bitter batter.

5. Start by adding all the wet ingredients into the blender to ensure smooth movement of the blades. 

6. Ensure your blender has high power. ( if you blend dosa batter in it, your blender can do this too)
