Preheat oven to 350 F.
Combine together in a bowl juice, sugar and oil and whisk well.
In a different bowl mix all dry ingredients, then add the dry to the wet, stirring well.
Place in a oiled pan and cook for 40 minutes, until the toothpick comes out dry.
Allow cake to cool down.
Meanwhile prepare the filling; peel and chop the oranges and put them along with the sugar in a sauce pan. Cook for 20-30 minutes on medium low, stirring often. If you prefer, you can skip this part and simply use orange marmalade.
Once the cake has cooled down, cut it in 2-3 layers and cover with the orange filling.
Finish the cake off with a awesome yet weird ganasche
