Preheat the oven to 180 degreecs C (or 160 degrees for fan forced). Line the cake tin with baking paper.
Combine the orange, sugar, butter and eggs in a food processort and process until thoroughly combined.
Transfer this mixture into a bowl, and fold in the flour and poppyseeds. Spread the mixture into the prepared cake tin.
Bake for about 45 minutes or until cooked when tested by sticking in a knife or metal skewer and checking that it comes out dry.
Let the cake cool for about 15 minutes before turning onto a wire rack to cool.
