Gluten Free Whole Orange Cake

This cake is so spectacular that it doesn’t last long in my house for a photo to be taken. I will endeavour to get one eventually but for now blogging the recipe allows me to find it later.

Can you tell I am still
On my orange bender? Next I wouldn’t mind some crepe suzette.

I have always wanted to make a whole orange cake but the budget didn’t like the fact I had to use 3 odd cups of almond meal and 6 eggs. So as usual I just experimented and out came the most yummy, moist cake that my kids love. Bonus!!

1 large orange
3 eggs
1/2 c Panela sugar (or alternative)
1/3 c melted coconut oil
1 tbl GF baking powder
1 c almond meal
1 c GF self raising flour blend (shop bought)

In a small saucepan place in orange and cover with water to the top. Bring to boil and simmer for two hours. This will take away the bitterness of the rind. Leave to cool. I did this part the day before.

Preheat oven, 180c degrees.
Remove the orange from the water and blitz until smooth. Discard water.
Now in another bowl whisk ( I just used a hand whisk) together the eggs and sugar until combined. Add in the orange purée, oil and baking powder. Combine.
Stir in the almond meal and flour. Pour into a 20cm round cake pan and cook for 35-45 mins or until firm.
