It is really low maintenance and let's face it a fabulous cake to have when you have coeliacs about - even us non-coeliacs will be vying for a piece. It's gorgeous and moist and the preparation method of the oranges gives it a deep and sweet but not sickly taste.
I'm yet to find someone who doesn't love this cake.... I'm sure there's someone out there but they're crazy friends, crazy!! It's delicious!
2 oranges (I used navel)
250g caster sugar
250g almond meal
1 tsp baking powder
In a large pot, boil your oranges for 2 hours. (Yes, I really wrote 2 hours!) This can be done ahead of time and yes, you don't peel it or anything. Once done, set aside to cool.
Preheat oven to 180 degrees c.
In a food processor mix your eggs and caster sugar until well combined
Chop up your oranges roughly, skin intact - the house smells glorious when you're boiling them and then they are bright and lovely when you cut them!
Plonk them into your egg/flour mixture and process until orange is miniscule!
Then add your almond meal and baking powder, process until well combined.
Pour into a greased 18 or 20 inch springform pan.
Bake for 1 hour - give or take 10 minutes depending on pan you've used. Dust with icing sugar..
It's yummy served warm with cream too! (reheat in foil if you wish)
