Gluten Free Orange Cake
Makes about 12 slices – perfect holiday treat to share with your guests!
¼ cup of raw sugar
1 ½ cups of almond meal
Icing sugar may be added when serving for those wanting a sweeter taste
Place the whole oranges (still in their skins) in the saucepan and cover with water. Bring to the boil and then reduce the heat to allow the oranges to simmer for about 45 minutes or until they are tender. Remove from the water and allow to cool.
Preheat the oven to 180oC.
Lightly grease the cake tin and cover with baking paper.
Cut each orange into quarters and remove any pips. Place each quarter (still in their skins) one at a time into the food processor and blend until smooth.
Place the eggs in a mixing bowl and beat lightly. Fold through the blended orange, almond meal, sugar and baking powder. Pour the mixture into the prepared cake tin. Bake for 45-50 minutes or until firm. Remove from the oven and leave to cool in the tin.
Serve in slices dusted with icing sugar to taste and garnish with fresh fruit in season.
