One of the first recipes I tried in the Bellini was the 30 second cake. My youngest is rather partial to cake after school and I try and make one occasionally on days I am not working. Usually I use a packet mix because it is quick, fairly easy and you get pretty consistent results. In other words, even I cant stuff up a packet mix! So I tried the 30 second orange cake. Wow!
It takes literally 30 seconds to make the whole mix. That includes throwing in a whole orange that has been cut into quarters, skin and all!
The first one was very nice and we gobbled it up slightly warm. It was a little tart and textured for my liking so I adapted it slightly for the next time.
I cut the orange into quarters and removed the skin from 3 and left one with the skin on. This resulted in a much nicer cake. I also made a lemon drizzle to go over the top. I poked holes in the cake with a skewer when it was fresh from the oven and poured the drizzle over. The drizzle was made from the juice of one lemon and 100 gms of icing sugar gently heated until the sugar dissolved.
