Taste and Create: Orange Cake

I'm slightly late in posting this (and like a million other things!!!!!!!) but life has been rather busy the last few months and I've not had time for blogging, but have been baking and cooking when I get the chance.

So this is my post for this month's Taste and Create hosted this month by Min and Shell at The Bad Girls' Kitchen.

I was paired with Tasty Treats by Poornima - a blog I hadn't come across and one I enjoyed having a sift through deciding what to make. I love orange flavours at the minute and I love baking so I had to make this....

  1. Hey Ruth, That's are very nice looking orange cake!

    You know, there's another orange cake that I think you'd like to check out from Damien Pignolet called Serious Orange Cake. Instead of orange juice, you use a whole orange blitz into a pulp (without seeds). Hope that piqued your interest! :)

  2. I have an orange cake recipe that I love, but this one makes me want to try it out!

  3. I love orange flavoured cakes and this one looks and sounds absolutely delish!
