Orange Crush

KimberleyJoeHarper have been helping out a whole lot with Sweeney the last few weeks, so to try to work my way back to some credit, I offered to do Kimberley's baking for Ronald McDonald House today. They're getting an orange cake. It's delicious, and easy, and it makes use of a couple of oranges in the bowl. Here's how it goes:

1 whole orange, washed and processed to a pulp (including skin), 125 g melted butter, 1 cup sugar, 2 med-large eggs, 1&1/2 cups self raising flour.

Process the orange first then mix in sugar, butter and eggs. Fold in the flour. Bake in the oven at 180 C for 35-40 mins. Also nice if you use a lemon instead of an orange.

It was chilly here this morning. I roasted some vegetables for soup, and that warmed the place up nicely. The weather outlook is for a drop to 11 degrees for the next few days. 11 degrees! Sweeney's determined to have either bare or wet feet at the moment, and usually both. We bicker about his footwear quite a bit.
He's sitting at the table drinking some warm milk and playing with his trucks, singing Twinkle Twinkle. So nice ...
