It's citrus season now and that means lots of ways to use up in season oranges! These orange cakes all have their own distinctive flavours and textures and are my favourite way to eat oranges! There is the classic Italian Ciambella cake, a sticky orange, chilli & vodka cake, a chocolate mousse & orange cake, an orange & coconut syrup cake and the lightest ever orange ricotta cake!

1 - Ciambella Orange Cake
Rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1 readers
I love this classic Italian Ciambella orange cake, I really do! It has the most gorgeous, soft, velvety texture to it. Ciambella means ring so it's perfect for your favourite bundt tin!
2 - Sticky Orange, Chilli & Vodka Cake
This one is an oldie but a goodie! If you want to serve up a beautiful cake that isn't your typical orange cake then give this sticky orange, chilli and vodka cake a try!
3 - Orange Chocolate Mousse Cake
Chocolate and orange are such a classic combination and this chocolate mousse cake is based on one I ate in a restaurant and became quite besotted with! On top are honeyed oranges which have to been eaten to be believed!
4 - Orange Coconut Syrup Cake
This amazing orange syrup cake is moist and tangy thanks to the winning combination of orange and coconut. The orange and vanilla syrup helps keep it moist for a few days-that is, if it lasts that long! And it is frosted with a tangy orange buttercream frosting!
5 - Orange Ricotta Cake
This is another beautiful Italian orange cake. This time we use ricotta that gives this cake an unique lightness to the texture! Seriously, this texture is amazing and you have to try it at least once!
So tell me Dear Reader, which orange cake do you like the best? Have you made any of these?
