Last Tuesday I prepared the Sicilian orange cake cake and after having tasted it I wondered why I had never tried it before.
It is very simple to prepare, but above all it is of a unique goodness.
The orange should be used whole, please check that it has not been treated, because you will need both the juice and the peel.
The origin of this recipe is Sicilian and is typical of the winter period, it has an unmistakable taste and aroma that everyone, both young and old, will like.
It is one of those waste-free cakes perfect to prepare in the company of your children and you will be amazed at how easy it is to prepare.
And then what better way than to prepare a cake to celebrate the blog’s birthday?
I leave you with the recipe for the thermomix Sicilian orange cake.
