Orange Almond Cake

This is very similar to the lemon cake with the oranges being boiled first but yields for a lovely moist cake.   Easy to make, easier to eat!  Make sure that the oranges are organic as the whole orange, skin included it used.



2 medium oranges


4 eggs, separated

1 cup honey

2 cups almond flour

1 tspn baking soda

1/2 tspn salt


  • Place the oranges in a saucepan of water, ensuring that they are covered. Bring to the boil and simmer for 1 1/2 to 2 hours.  They should be soft enough for a fork to go through them.
  • Remove the oranges and cool slightly.
  • Preheat the oven to 170C/325F degrees.
  • Place the oranges into a food processor and blend into a paste with no lumps.
  • Add the almond flour, honey, salt, baking soda and egg yolks.
  • Whisk the egg white into soft peaks and gently fold into the orange batter.
  • Place the batter into a greased spring form cake pan.
  • Bake for 1 hour.
  • Eat and enjoy!

    I like the sound of this cake but being a diabetic type2 the cup of honey has discouraged me from making. What do you think about agve syrup instead?
