Orange cake

Oranges are one of my favorite fruits and since it's the season , why not enjoy it in a different way than a simple breakfast juice.

Orange cake is a classic childhood desert that i loved helping to make it when my mother prepared it for me , that's why i can't help but making it whenever i have loads of oranges laying on my fruit basket .

But of course the original recipe is so sweet and contains a big ratio of oil in it counter to this recipe that contains only 181 Cal per serving ( 6 serving ) .

__ Ps: The baking sheet i used is small so do not hesitate to multiply the ingredients quantities if you want a bigger cake , for reference if you double the ingredients i mentioned above you should have enough for a medium size loaf baking sheet . __
