Orange-almond cake

We all need a cake we can throw together for special occasions. This cake is gluten-free, making it perfect for those with intolerances, as well as being light and not too sweet. The perfect accompaniment to a cup of coffee in the afternoon. It’s also quite easy to put together and doesn’t require too many ingredients.

What you’ll need: 

  • 3 oranges
  • 4 eggs
  • 220g caster sugar
  • 300g ground almonds
  • 2 tbsp honey

What you’ll need to do:

  1. Grease an 8″ springform tin and line the bottom with baking parchment. Preheat oven to 180ºC.
  2. Put 2 unpeeled oranges into a steamer or set in a sieve above a pot of previously boiled water, now simmering.
  3. When the oranges have softened and broken down slightly but still retain their shape, remove.
  4. Cut the oranges into smaller pieces, place in a food processor and blend until smooth.
  5. Stir the almonds, eggs and sugar into the orange mixture and stir to combine.
  6. Pour into the lined tin and bake for about 55 mins to an hour or until a skewer comes out clean.
  7. Meanwhile, place the juice of the third orange into a small pan and add the honey. Heat to combine.
  8. When the cake is out of the oven pour the warm orange and honey syrup over the cake.
