Ten minutes Orange & Poppy Seed cake

I grow Navel Oranges and last year, I had a bumper crop and I made the cake every alternate day and distributed them to my friends and my husband's office colleagues.


  • Ingredients A

  • 220 gm navel oranges or 2 large navel oranges - cut into segments including skin

  • ¾ cup sugar

  • Ingredients B

  • 2 cups self raising flour

  • 3 eggs

  • 190 g butter - at room temperature

  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil

  • Ingredients C

  • 2 tablespoons black poppy seeds

  • Olive oil spray - to oil baking pan


  • 1.

    Preheat oven to 180C

  • 2.

    Grease 22cm baking pan with olive oil spray- set aside

  • 3.

    In a food processor - process oranges and sugar until finely chopped

  • 4.

    Add Ingredients B and process until well combined

  • 5.

    Finally add Ingredients C and mix well

  • 6.

    Spread mixture evenly onto the greased baking pan

  • 7.

    Cook in a moderate oven 180C for about 45 minutes or until cooked when tested.

This is a very moist cake. Do not process the ingredients too much. Maximum processing time is 8 mins. Olive oil can be used instead of butter.
