Want to know what I love most about winter? It’s orange season!

An even better thing is that my hubbys parents have orange trees in their garden so – free oranges!

Every winter we go over with a Ikea bag (they are quite big) and fill it up with oranges that last us for weeks, simply delicious!

So today I woke up and realised that I had a bit of a Vitamin C overdose, so I decided to stop with the orange juice a little and make a cake instead.

Check out the recipe below
