Doughnuts with orange, Orange fluffy cakes, plum cake with orange… These days it is the triumph of citrus fruits, either because they are in season, because vitamin C is fine and especially in periods where the influence is lurking. So here it comes in handy Sicilian recipe 'orange pan': a soft sweet, soft, It remains wet for a long time and improves with the passage of time, in fact, I suggest you eat it the day after it is baked. Is’ critical that, to prepare the orange pan, you stand up oranges untreated, because the oranges using whole, with all the zest. To make the pan of even more tasty orange I made a slight orange frosting and I garnished with candied orange peel. If you want, you can replace butter with vegetable oil, but I honestly do not really like as a solution. Try it for breakfast, with the Orange Marmalade (of course) spread over. You'll hear in Sicily. And do not forget to have a look at all my PLUMCAKE OF RECIPES, Have a nice day!

Fabulous! I did it with millet flour because I had the House chock (Vegan and gluten free.) By eating hot or cold, yummy!
ADA could you advise me a recipe “dolcepocodolce” with so many seeds (pumpkin Sesame sunflower)? Or even a vegetarian savory recipe but with many seeds? Maybe you've already posted,I didn't find (already tried the pumpkin with stew over the seeds.…by applause,the next day. But I wanted something with seeds starring ...)

Hi Valentina! Thank you very much! Is’ a recipe almost more like a bread than a cake. Then, recipes with many seeds: Meanwhile, you might try the vegan soup of Chard and leeks with dried fruit and seeds, or the vegetarian salad with pumpkin, cabbage, gorgonzola and seeds. Then you should try one of my breads, I've done so many seeds but you can always increase the amount according to your pleasure. How sweet recipes there are Sicilian cookies covered with sesame seeds, they are fabulous and aren't too sweet. Let me know. A hug, ADA

It's been a while’ I was looking for a recipe similar, not a normal cake with orange but more like a sweet bread. Thanks I'll definitely try.
Hi Rosita

Hi Rosita, Thanks for stopping by. I warn you though that is just a bread, in the sense that the result is dense and often, not fluffy and airy like a cake. I say this because many expect a cake and not as. Let me know. ADA

Rosita February 28, 2015 - 10:36

ADA I tried, but a yogurt Cup + 1 teaspoon baking soda, as leavening agent.
I really liked.

Rosita thanks! Will try it with the yogurt and let you know. Baking soda you added it in baking powder and cream of tartar or have you replaced one of the two? Thanks again!

Rosita March 2, 2015 - 10:39

I've only used baking soda,No yeast or cream of tartar.

Is’ for a while now’ I follow you, but now it's time to comment: Great if it is true that look Sicily, is really on TOP. Keep it up

Sicilians creative in the kitchen February 9, 2015 - 22:26

Thanks, heartfelt thanks. Also because you commented on a poor recipe which I cherish and that and’ so different from rich and fluffy cakes that are all the rage now. ADA

I seem to have already seen but I might be wrong but not to forget the prejudice. The Orange Marmalade (only to be able to define that) I love that particular bitter. I'll try to do it and if I already commented it means I lose shots….. Kiss

Erika February 7, 2015 - 11:46
