※ Orange and Almond Cake
- 2 oranges
- 250 g brown sugar, plus extra for dusting
- 6 eggs
- 250 g almond meal
- 1 tsp baking powder
- icing sugar for dusting / I used unrefined white sugar
- Butter (for greasing the pan)
Wash the oranges and cook in boiling water for 2 hours. Drain and allow the oranges to cool before pureeing. This can be done ahead of time.
Preheat the oven to 160°C. Butter a 20 cm springform cake tin and dust it with a little sugar. Place the eggs and 250 g of sugar in a mixing bowl and beat well.
Stir in the orange puree followed by the almond meal and baking powder. Pour into the tin and dust the top with more sugar.
Bake for 1–1½ hours, until the top is golden brown.
Dust with sugar to serve.
