Food-Processor Orange Cake

With Autumn comes a glut of citrus, and one of my favourite ways to use up a spare orange is this easy cake which is done entirely in the food processor. No beating, no creaming, just mix, pour and bake.

1 orange, roughly chopped, skin and all
3 eggs
180g butter, melted
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups SR flour

Preheat oven to 180C.
Line a loaf tin with baking paper.
Throw the chopped orange in the food processor and process until smooth.
Add the rest of the ingredients, and process until combined.

Pour mix into the prepared tin, and bake for 50 minutes, or until a skewer comes out clean.
Leave in tin for 5 minutes, then turn out onto a rack to cool.

You can then enjoy the cake plain, or smothered in a lemon icing if you want a little extra zing.
