THE VITAMIN C QUEEN

 

Orange is one of the fruits that I like the most. It wasn’t always like that, I liked orange but it wasn’t a fruit that made my mouth water or that made me particularly happy when I ate it, it was just another fruit.

 

But over the years I started to fall in love with oranges. For its citrusy and fresh aroma, for its unique taste and sweetness, for its juiciness and texture. As I have an orange tree at home loaded with oranges I even eat the peel (i mean the zest). Yes, more than being rich in essential oils and vitamins, orange peel is also where orange flavor is most concentrated, so I always use zest to bring orange flavor to smoothies, porridges, pancakes, yogurts, cookies, cakes, etc …

 

Known for being one of the richest foods in vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant famous for being an immune system ally, orange is not just about that. Orange is also one of the fruit with the greatest capacity to reduce damage to our DNA, helping to preventing cancer, particularly breast cancer. But studies report that most of the compounds that help in the tissues repair are present in the orange peel, that´s why it’s so important to consuming it regularly.

 

Thanks to its richness in antioxidants, orange helps to fight the aging of cells and skin. Orange also protects us against cardiovascular diseases thanks to the phytochemicals present in this fruit that promote greater elasticity of blood vessels, thus improving blood flow through the arteries of our heart.

 

Orange still offers us a good amount of folate, potassium, niacin, phosphorus, magnesium and copper, as well as Viatmina A, B1, B2, B6 and E.

 

Orange is a fruit that is available almost the entire year and is particularly accessible (at least in Portugal), so there is no reason why it should not be part of our diet regularly, not to say daily. My tip, take the orange and zest it, discard the white part and cut the orange into cubes, add the zest in your oatmeal, and add the orange cubes on top! IT’S SOOOOOOOOOO GOOD!

 

But I know that what you guys really like are cakes, right?

 

So let’s see what Mrs. Orange inspired me to do.

THIS RECIPE IS:

 

EASY | QUICK | LIGHT | TENDER | MOIST | AROMATIC | SPECIAL

 

 

Well, inspired by the fragrant oranges that abound around here, I created this Orange and Turmeric Loaf Cake that ended up beyond delicious.

 

A fluffy and suuuuper light cake, with an irresistible orange flavor and a touch of turmeric that makes all the difference not only in color but also in flavor!

 

The process is the usual, mix the dry ingredients, then mix the wet ingredients, and finally mix them both and take it to the oven!

 

The icing is also super easy to make and you know the best? It is not made with sugar!

 

Let´s go give the proper use to all these oranges!
