5-Minute Orange Cake

Kids love cakes, but most versions bought in stores are loaded with sugar. It can really compromise their taste buds, in my opinion!
This recipe is the quickest possible. In just 5 minutes the batter is in the oven, and the result is a big hit.
Use your imagination and vary the fruit each time you make this recipe. Kids will love the opportunity to choose!

5-Minute Orange Cake
Servings: about 10 slices

- 2 peeled oranges, sliced
- 3/4 cup canola oil
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- 1/2 cup quinoa flour or flakes (you can use all purpose flour instead)
- 1 tablespoon baking powder

Mix in a blender the orange, oil, eggs and sugar to a paste consistency. Move the batter to a round container, and slowly add the dry ingredients. Mix all well with a spoon.  Prepare the baking pan with some cooking oil spray and flour. Bake it for 45 minutes at 325 degrees Fahrenheit. Test the center with a toothpick before turning off the oven. Let it cool for 20 minutes before serving.
If you desire to decorate it with a topping, mix 3 spoons of orange juice with 5 spoons of powdered (also known as confectioner's) sugar. It is ready to decorate.
