I had this craving for a cake with oranges for breakfast from a very long time, I wanted to make it before the orange season ended and I also wanted to use the cardamom pods that Bira gave me. Then I received the invitation for the competition Ci piace un succo ("Ci paice un sacco" means we like it it a lot, here "succo" means juice) from Senza Panna, Lost in Kitchen and Tzatziki a colazione. It was written, I simply had to make this cake, soft and very scented.
Ingredients: 300gr (1.3cup-10.5oz) flour - 200gr (0.9cup - 7.2oz) butter - 200gr (0.9cup - 7.2oz) sugar - 3 eggs - 3tsp baking powder - juice and zest of 2 oranges - 2 cardamom pods
Cream butter with sugar, add eggs one at a time and flour mixed with baking soda. Open cardamom pods, take out tthe seeds and crush them in a mortar, then add the powder to the dough, together with orange zest and juice. Grease a plumcake tin, pour in the mixture and bake at 180° C (350F - gas mark 4).
