Ever had left over oranges lingering around the house?
What to do with them?
We usually are pretty good at cutting and eating fruit, but sometimes we hide certain foods in the pantry and forget they are there. So when I find that I have not so fresh oranges that won’t taste good to eat, we make this delicious cake. I made my own version with MonkFruit which is an absolutely natural sweetener. It has the same consistency as sugar without all the sugar guilt.
Also, I have found that the best way to never get a cake to stick to the bottom of a pan is to use this:
Here is a video on how to remove a cake from the pan! I learned this from a cake course I took back in college!
I highly recommend using the Wilton spray above. If not you can opt for butter or olive oil to ore grease your pan before pouring batter in. But the second option is always hit and miss. My cakes always come out fabulously and flawlessly when I use the baking spray.

Or until toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.For the glaze: In a microwave safe dish melt 1/2 cup of white chocolate chips with 2 Tbsp of orange juice. Melt at 30 second intervals mixing in between. Add 1 Tbsp of orange juice at a time if needed until chocolate chips have melted and you obtain a creamy consistency. Drizzle over cake while still warm. Enjoy!
