This cake is made by boiling whole oranges until they are soft, then blitzing them to a pulp, skin and all, and mixing with the other ingredients. The result is a moist and sticky sponge, the resulting flavour is like orange on steroids, and beautifully balanced by the marzipan-like flavour of ground almonds. There's also a hint of spicing in there to enhance and complement the other ingredients. We usually ice this with cream cheese icing, to cut through the rich sponge. Totally wonderful!
Whole boiled oranges, caster sugar, ground almonds, free-range whole eggs, gluten-free baking powder (raising agents sodium dihydrogen diphosphate and sodium hydrogen carbonate, rice flour), ground cinnamon, ground cloves.
Cream cheese (milk), icing sugar, salted butter (milk), lemon juice.
The cake went down so so well, thank you! Looked beautiful and everyone said multiple times how delicious it was. Mum was very touched as she never gets gluten-free cakes that good! :-)
