gluten free label

Ingredients

  • 4-5 clementines or other oranges (about 1 pound)
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 1/3 cups ground almonds
  • 1 heaping teaspoon baking powder

Method

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 375ºF.

Step 2

Put the oranges in a pot with some cold water, bring to a boil and cook for 2 hours.

Step 3

Drain and, when cool, cut each orange in half and remove the pits. Put the whole oranges - skins, fruit and all - in a blender and pulse.

Step 4

Add the remaining ingredients and pulse until it becomes a pulp. Butter and line an 8 inch springform pan.

Step 5

Pour the cake mixture into the prepared pan and bake for an hour. The cake is ready when a skewer will come out clean. You may have to cover with foil after about 40 minutes to stop the top from burning.

Step 6

Remove from the oven and leave to cool, on a rack, but leave it in the pan. Take it out of the pan only when it is completely cooled.

Step 7

This cake is even better the day after it's made!

Step 8

Makes one 8" round cake.

cooking tipsVariations:

  • Use an equal amount of lemons to turn this into a flourless lemon cake recipe. You may need to add just a bit more sugar to account for the greater acidity in the lemons.
  • Substitute an equal amount of Splenda or other bakeable sugar replacement and turn it into a wonderful sugar free cake, great for those looking for diabetic dessert recipes or just watching your sugar intake.
