Cooking a Delicious Orange and Almond Cake with Sophie Rose

 

Today we made this delicious orange and almond cake for our friends birthday celebration! It’s gluten free and so yummy, perfect for morning or afternoon tea. Soph had fun measuring the ingredients and mixing everything together, she’s becoming an expert at cracking the eggs and didn’t even get any shell in the mixture this time!

This cake is incredibly light and fluffy and has so much flavour. It’s really delicious as it is but sometimes we also add a cream cheese icing if we feel like being extra decadent! Here is our yummy recipe;

Ingredients

  • 3 oranges
  • 6 eggs
  • 100g almond meal
  •  tsp baking powder
  • 1 cup castor sugar

Method

  1. Wash & pierce oranges then cook in microwave for 10mins, discard juice
  2. When cool peel two oranges, leave skin on 1 orange
  3. Puree to a pulp in food processor or blender
  4. Beat eggs & sugar
  5. Add almond meal & baking powder, then pulp
  6. Pour into greased & lined 23cm tin & bake for 1hour & 10mins at 160 C degrees
