The Easiest Orange and Almond Cake

This gluten free cake is incredibly easy to make; even if you’re stressed out, it won’t topple you over into nervous collapse. It’s the easiest cake recipe I know, and is sure to please both the gluten free and the classic cake consuming crowds.

375 grams oranges (approx. 3 medium-sized ones)
6 large eggs
220 grams white sugar
250 grams ground almonds
1 teaspoon gluten free baking powder


Place the oranges in a pot, covered in cold water. Bring to the boil and cook for 2 hours. The kitchen will be delightfully fragrant with the scent of oranges! Drain, and when cool, cut the oranges in half to remove the seeds. Put the whole oranges -skin and all- in the food processor and blitz quickly. Add all the other ingredients to the food processer and mix to combine. Pour the mixture into a prepared spring form cake tin and bake on 190 degrees Celsius for about an hour, or until a skewer comes out clean. You may have to cover he top of the cake with foil after about 40 minutes to stop the top burning.
