Flourless Orange Cake
This is the best flourless orange cake I have ever made! It uses whole boiled oranges and is the most moist dense and delicious cake.
2 oranges (I always double this and freeze half)
250g caster sugar
2 cups (250g) almond meal
1 tsp baking powder
Place oranges (un-peeled) in a saucepan of cold water. Bring to the boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 2 hours, topping up water when necessary. Drain, cool slightly and roughly chop, discarding seeds.
Preheat oven to 180 degrees. Grease and line a 25cm cake pan.
Place caster sugar and eggs in a food processor and process until thick and pale. Add chopped oranges and whiz until smooth, then add ground almonds and baking powder. Whiz until combined.
Pour batter into cake pan and bake for one hour or until a skewer comes out clean.
Serve with whipped cream or mascarpone. For extra wow factor top with fresh seasonal fruit and dust with icing sugar.
Note: If you don’t have a food processor, you can blend up your oranges with a hand blender, then throw it all in your mix master to combine.
