Orange & Almond Cake

I made this very moist and gluten free cake for the weekend and it was a winner! Almond flour & oranges make this cake a match made in heaven, perfect for the spring here in Australia! Next time I will use honey or agave syrup instead of the sugar to make it healthier. Very good with whipped cream or greek yogurt.



2 oranges
3 eggs
150g caster sugar
300g almond meal
1 tsp baking powder

Wash the oranges, place them in a large saucepan and cover with water. Bring to boil and simmer for 30 minutes.  Drain and coarse chop the orange discarding any seeds.

Place the oranges in the bowl of a food processor and process until smooth.

Whisk the eggs and the sugar until thick and pale. Add the orange, almond meal and baking powder and fold until just combined. Pour into a greased, 22cm round pan and bake in 170C for about 50 minutes or until skewer inserted comes out clean.
