Love this Cake! hard to find a GF, Dairy Free - and it is super easy. I cut the sugar in half and it was still great. Here was my US conversion for the amounts...
3 oranges, 1-1/3 C sugar, 4-1/2 C almond meal, 6 eggs
Used the oven at 350 or 375 degrees
I have made this numerous times for a friend that is gluten-intolerant and have taken it to a couple brunches and everyone loves it!! One thing, you really don't have to let the oranges cool before you process them, it still works when they are hot. Also you can use any combination of citrus fruit that weighs up to one pound...I like a mix of lemon and tangerene, very good. Also the cake turns out well if you just dump all of the ingrediants into the processor all at once (or process the fruit and add the other ingredents; I think in any order you put them in it still works) Such an easy cake
Wonderful,,,moist tasty and so simple to make. The only changes I made were to use a combination of oranges and lemons, and I was also slightly worried by the high sugar content so, just to clear my conscious, I half and halved using 250g of Splenda and 250g of the sugar.
Next time I might try adding toasted almonds and some freshly grated orange zest. Thank you for a really tasty recipe.
This did not work for me. It was heavy, dense, and not cake-like. Tasted pretty much the same baked as unbaked, just more solid. It looked too good to be true and it was.
This cake was fantastic. I served it to a crowd and everyone raved. I used 11 small clementines instead of oranges. Next time I will shred some dark chocolate and mix it into the batter, too.
I was excited to see a gluten free recipe that was also dairy free, however the end result was disappointing. It was very heavy and dense; possibly undercooked, but I don't think cooking it a little longer would have made it significantly better.
I did 6 eggs, 2 oranges, 1 1/4 cup caster sugar, 2 1/2 cups almond meal, tsp baking powder. For the oranges I cut them into quarters and then into the microwave for 5 mins. -- let them cool then into the processor.
This is my first attempt at making it. Too simple. Hope hubby likes it. Hubby is also lactose intolerant. I will be looking for a chocolate version, if anyone knows of one. I am also going to try a lime one, has this been done yet.
This is what I bake when I want everyone to think I'm the genius of baking (which I am not). It has a sophisticated flavor, a splendid texture, and lends itself to glorious presentation. Yay, cake!
Delicious. Easy to make and tastes good. I added walnuts and used butter. Will make it again and again.
