It's very easy to make.
WHOLE ORANGE CAKE (Will freeze)
2 Small sweet oranges
50gr (2oz) melted butter
+ a little extra.
140gr (5oz) Caster sugar
85gr (3oz) S.R.Flour
100gr (4oz) Ground Almonds
85gr (3oz) Icing Sugar
Creme Fraiche to serve (Optional)
Oven 180c, Gas 4, Fan 160c
Buttered and lined base of an
8" round deep cake tin.
Put 1 orange in a small saucepan, cover with cold water, bring to the boil and simmer
for 1 hour. Remove from pan and when cool roughly chop, discarding the pips. Put
into food processor including peel and whizz until smooth. Whisk sugar and eggs together
until light and fluffy, sieve in flour and almonds and gently fold in with metal
spoon. Add pureed orange and melterd butter and fold in until just mixed.
Pour into prepared tin and bake for 40-45 minutes. Cool in tin for 5 minutes before
removing. Put icing sugar into a bowl and mix with enough juice squeezed from other
orange to make a smooth pouring icing and spread over cake.
N.B. This can also be used as a sweet by omitting icing, but dusted with icing sugar
and serving warm with creme fraiche.
