Christmas orange cake


The aroma of freshly peeled oranges always reminds us of Christmas, even in the early summer.




Heat the oven at 180 degrees or 160 if your oven has a fan.


Soak the raisins and blueberries in rum and leave aside.


In a large bowl, mix the soft butter with sugar, flour, baking powder, orange peel, vanilla extract and eggs. Stir with a mixer until a homogeneous mixture is obtained.


Take a pan, place baking paper and smear with a little oil.


Add the soaked dried fruit, a few spoons of rum and stir.


Pour the mixture into the pan and bake until ready for about 25 minutes.


Take the cake from the oven and, while it is still warm, pour over it the orange syrup.


For decoration, break the powdered sugar with lemon juice for couple of minutes and sprinkle over the cake. Use figurines as desired. Cut into squares.


Let cool and serve.
