Orange and Almond Cake

Orange and Almond Cake
2 oranges, washed
250g caster sugar, plus extra for dusting
6 eggs
250g almond meal
1 tsp baking powder
icing sugar, to serve

Bring a large pot of water to the boil. Wash the oranges and cook in the boiling water
for 2 hours. Drain, allow to cool to room temperature, then puree. This step can be
done ahead of time.
Preheat the oven to 160°C. Grease and line a 22 cm spring form cake tin with baking
paper.
Beat the eggs and caster until well combined.
Stir in the orange puree followed by the almond meal and baking powder.
Pour the batter into the prepared tin and dust the top with extra caster sugar. Bake
for 1-1¼ hours, until the top is golden and a skewer inserted into the centre comes
out clean.
Allow to cool in the tin. Dust with icing sugar, cut into slices and serve.
