  • Add eggs one by one.
  • Stir in almonds, flour and salt.
  • Sprinkle remainder of sugar on the base of the cake tin. Using the most perfect slices of orange, arrange them overlapping a lot on the base of the cake tin. Use up slightly more than a third of the slices.
  • Spread a third of the cake mixture onto the oranges.
