Print Recipe

Ingredients

  • 2 medium oranges
  • 4 medium eggs separated
  • 1 cup erythritol, ground
  • 2 cups almond flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt

Instructions

  • Place the oranges in a saucepan of water, ensuring that they are covered. Bring to the boil and simmer for 1 ½ to 2 hours. They should be soft enough for a fork to go through them.
  • Remove the oranges and cool slightly.
  • Place the oranges into a food processor and blend into a paste with no lumps.
  • Preheat the oven to 170C/325F degrees.
  • Add the almond flour, erythritol, salt, baking soda and egg yolks.
  • Whisk the egg white into soft peaks and gently fold into the orange batter.
  • Place the cake batter into a greased spring form cake pan (I used an 8 inch one)
  • Bake for 1 hour until firm.
  • Eat and enjoy!
