Orange Almond Cake (Gluten Free)

Recipe by Chef #365550
READY IN: 17mins




  • Bring a pot of water to the boil, add the oranges, cover and simmer for one hour.
  • Stain off the water. Cool the oranges. If you are in a hurry, I suggest you partly cool them -- (this will still work).
  • While they are cooling, food process the sugar with the eggs until the sugar is dissolved and pour into a bowl.
  • Cut the oranges in half and de-seed them and put the oranges (with peel and pith) into a food processor and pulp until reasonably smooth.
  • Pour the pulp into the sugar/egg mix and add the almond meal. Gently mix together.
  • Pour mix into baking paper lined 24 - 26cm springform tin and bake for 50 - 60 minutes at 185°C.
  • Serve with creme fraiche, whipped cream, or vanilla ice-cream -- makes an awesome dessert. You could drizzle a little citrus liqueur around the plate.
  • Added thoughts -- This cake DOES NOT need any syrup poured over it.
  • NB.Simply double this recipe to get two large cakes. It is just as successful.
  • Occasionally, I will add a slurp of Grand Marnier, Contreau, or Galliano; however, try it plain initially.
