Summer Cake

It has been ages since my last recipe so here is a cake that suits the summer perfectly. The inspiration comes from a limited edition juice box I found containing raspberries and oranges so if you haven’t tried it you should pay your kitchen a visit and mix some orange juice with some raspberries because it was absolutely delicious. Just so you know the oranges I found in the grocery store were gigantic so I only needed one and a half. So if the once you find are normal-sized you might need two oranges.

 Oven Temperature:  175°C  Time Range: 1 hour


3 deciliters of sugar

150 grams of butter

3 eggs

2 teaspoons of baking soda

Grated shell from ½ an orange (I didn’t do any proper measurements here but I can’t have used more than a tablespoon.)

2 deciliters of orange juice

3, 3 deciliters of wheat flour

Icing ingredients:

3 – 4 deciliters of icing sugar

Some orange juice

About 15 raspberries

  1. Whisk the butter and the sugar.
  2. Pour in one egg at the time and whisk.
  3. Add all the other ingredients and whisk.
  4. Butter a pan and pour some sugar over it, the pan you use should be able to contain about one liter of dough. Then you put the pan into a cold oven and set the degrees to 175°C and leave the cake in for about an hour.
  5. Wait until the cake is cold and then apply the icing.

How to make the icing:

Simply add and whisk all the ingredients. Make sure you crush the raspberries properly. Then taste the icing frequently for the perfect orange and raspberry mix. Also watch the consistency so the icing becomes solid and not too lose. Then you simply use a spoon (or something else) and smear the icing over the cake in an even layer. Once that is done find a big lid to cover the cake with so it does not become dry while you wait for the icing to become solid.

My cell phone camera is really strange with its brightness once I’m indoors so I took the pictures with two different cameras and that is why the cake’s colors look so different from each other in the two pictures. So what does it actually look like? – Well it’s kind of a mix between the two but it is a lot more similar to the lower picture than the upper one.
