Next, squeeze the juice from all the oranges. At the end, you should have 250 ml of fresh orange juice.

Drink what's extra. If you don't have enough, squeeze the juice from another orange, or add a little water.

Step 5

Notice the batter. If it's got the consistency of yogurt, don't add more flour.

But it might be too liquid, in which case I recommend adding 25 more grams of flour. Mix thoroughly.

Step 6

Pour the batter into a springform pan (24-26 cm in diameter), lined with baking paper.

Smooth out with a spoon. Place in the preheated oven to 200 degrees C for 20-25 minutes, or until it's well browned.

Step 7

While the orange cake is baking, we quickly prepare the lemon glaze. In a bowl, combine 5 tablespoons of powdered sugar with 5 tablespoons of lemon juice. Mix until the glaze is runny. You can add more lemon juice, if needed.

Step 8

Remove the cake from the oven. Now, while it's hot, spread the lemon glaze over the top.

Allow to cool completely for at least one hour. The glaze will harden and will give the cake an extra flavor, and a bit of sting.

Slice and taste. It's so refreshing, tender and aromatic.
