Orange Cake

Look at me trying to be all fancy n stuff!
I was teasing y'all about this the other day on Facebook and let me tell you, it was really good and your family will like it too!  I ended up making a cream cheese vanilla frosting to top it off (recipe later).  Other suggested whipped cream or an orange glaze.  You could even do a chocolate drizzle if that's your thang.

Please make sure you use medium sized oranges, I used large ones and the cake was very orangey....Bubba saw me putting the entire oranges in the blender and he was like....'ummmm hon...the peel's still on there....'

This recipe is courtesy of Elana's Pantry, which like I mentioned before, is a great blog and has a lot of dessert recipes, many of which are P10 compatible.
