Whole Orange Chocolate Cake

When I got some oranges, I always make "Orange pound cake". But I made orange pound cake so many times and it's getting board, still nice but I wanna try something different this time.
When I googled, I found unusual recipe (in Japanese) that use whole orange! Normally it use just orange zest for this cake, but this one is not!! :D
So here is how...

** Whole Orange Chocolate Cake **
Ingredients ( 1 loaf )
 170g Unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
 170g Sugar 
 3 Eggs (lightly beaten)
 200g Flour
 2 tsp Baking powder
 85g Chocolate, cut into a small pieces or use chocolate chips
 2 Oranges (If it's not organic, wash well) 

 # Preheat oven to 170 ℃. (338 F)
 # Sift flour and baking powder together
 # Generously butter a loaf tin (or any other cake tin) or  Line with non-stick baking paper and set it aside.
 #Prepare the oranges. Zest the orange then remove the skin, pith, membranes, and seeds of a citrus fruit and separate its wedges. ( check this page for how to cut the orange ...
Cut into 1/2 inch pieces. If you can get the juice from the scratch, keep it in the bowl.

 1. In the bowl, beat the butter until smooth and creamy. Add sugar mix well.
 2. Add eggs little by little, mix well each times. Then add all oranges ( zest, fruits, juice) and chocolate chips. 
 3. With wooden spoon, fold the flour into the mixture. Don't over mix!
 4. Pour over the loaf tin, bake around 40 min or until a skewer inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool on wire racks.

Good luck☆
