I love oranges as much as for their taste as for the flavor they give to desserts and cakes because of their fresh and delicate scent. This cake includes taste and flavor as I kept the whole fruit in the batter.


1.In a pot add water, honey and cinnamon stick to make the syrup and boil for 15 minutes. Allow to cool down.
2.Put oranges in a pot with water and boil for around 20 minutes until softened. Try with a toothpick inserted to make sure the oranges are softened.
3.Put the oranges out of the water, let them cool.
4.Preheat the oven at 170ο Celsius.
5.Cut the oranges, remove the seeds and make them a pulp in the blender.
6.In a medium bowl add semolina, flour, almond and baking powder.
7.In a large bowl with a hand mixer beat sugar and butter until it gets soften and fluffy.
8.Add eggs, cinnamon, pulp and all dry ingredients until combined.
9.Pour batter into an oiled pan and bake around 45 minutes.
10.Remove the cake from the oven and while it's still warm, add cold syrup into the cake.
11.Let it cool before slicing.

This dessert belongs to the category “siropiasta” that we traditionally make in Greece. And even though it isn’t a traditional one, as it has been added quite recently, it fairly deserves a place among them.
