Orange cake Thermomix recipe

Are you lucky enough to have some nice untreated oranges and are you looking for a good recipe? Try this Orange cake Thermomix recipe!

It is inspired by the Sicilian orange cake, the one that is prepared by putting the whole orange blended into the dough.
I say it is inspired, because to prepare it you need seedless oranges with a thin skin, with very little white layer between the skin and the pulp. Since they are not really easy to use, in the tips you will find a surprises-proof procedure !!

I must say that we adults like it above all, because certain flavors for children are still "a mystery".

In fact, I prepare it when I know that some friend is coming to visit me. And if you have enough left over ... the wrapping and gift, as a small souvenir of the afternoon spent together ;-).

Good cooking with the Thermomix orange cake!


(8 people)
For the cake
- An untreated orange
- 3 medium eggs
- 200 g of sugar
- 100 g of soft butter
- 250 g of plain flour
- 16 g of baking powder

For the orange sauce
- 100 g of sugar
- 2 untreated oranges

To garnish
- Candied orange peel

Let's cook

Wash and dry an untreated orange well.

Cut it into thick slices and then into pieces.

Eliminate any seeds and put in the Thermomix and mix 10 Sec. Speed 8. Collect with the spatula and repeat the operation 10 Sec. Speed 8. Transfer to a bowl.

Turn on the oven at 170°.

Put the butterfly whisk.

Put 3 eggs, 200 g of sugar in the mixing bowl and work 6 Min. Speed 4.

Remove the butterfly.

Add 100 g of soft butter, the reserved orange puree, 250 g of plain flour, 16 g of baking powder and mix 40 Sec. Speed 5.

Transfer to a 24 cm diameter springform pan, the bottom lined with baking paper, level one surface well with a spatula and bake 40 Min. At 170°.

In the meantime, wash and dry the mixing bowl.

Allow the cake to cool down, turn it upside down on a rack, remove the backing paper and let it cool for about 20 Min.

Add 100 g of sugar, the zest of an orange with no white parts to the mixing bowl and pulverize 15 Sec. Speed 10.

Squeeze the juice from 2 oranges and add it to the mixing bowl through a colander.

Cook 5 Min. 100° Speed 2.

Pour the sauce over the cake and decorate with the candied orange zest cut into fillets or cubes.


For this recipe we need thin-skinned oranges! Eventually, once cut into slices, if there was a consistent layer of white part (bitter), do this: take the zest with the potato peeler, remove the white part with the knife and then cut the slice into quarters.

If you prefer a less fluid sauce, which remains as a coating, use only an orange and 60 g of sugar, reducing the cooking time to 3 min.

If you are not interested in the sauce, sprinkle the cake with icing sugar or spread about 3 tbs of orange marmalade diluted with a tbs of Cointreau or with the same amount of warm water on the surface.

To make the cake even more delicious and "orange" ... fill it with orange custard !!!
