  • 3 large oranges
  • 6 large eggs


  1. Bring a pot of water to the boil, add the oranges, cover and simmer for one hour.
  2. Stain off the water. Cool the oranges. If you are in a hurry, I suggest you partly cool them - (this will still work).
  3. While they are cooling, food process the sugar with the eggs until the sugar is dissolved and pour into a bowl.
  4. Cut the oranges in half and de-seed them and put the oranges (with peel and pith) into a food processor and pulp until reasonably smooth.
  5. Pour the pulp into the sugar/egg mix and add the almond meal. Gently mix together.
  6. Pour mix into baking paper lined 24 - 26cm springform tin and bake for 50 - 60 minutes at 185°C.
  7. Serve with creme fraiche, whipped cream, or vanilla ice-cream - makes an awesome dessert. You could drizzle a little citrus liqueur around the plate.
  8. Added thoughts - This cake DOES NOT need any syrup poured over it.
  9. NB.Simply double this recipe to get two large cakes. It is just as successful.
  10. Occasionally, I will add a slurp of Grand Marnier, Contreau, or Galliano; however, try it plain initially.
