Ingredients

  • 2 large oranges, unpeeled
  • 6 eggs
  • 250g (9oz) ground almonds
  • 250g (9oz) caster sugar
  • 1tsp baking powder
  • To serve
  • orange slices, yogurt and honey
  • You will need
  • 23cm (9in) springform cake tin

Method

  • Wash the oranges and place in a pan with 150ml (¼pt) water and cook them with the lid on for about 2 hours, topping up the water if necessary. Once cooked allow to cool before cutting them open and removing the pips.

  • Preheat the oven to 180 C, 160 C fan, 350 F, gas 4. Oil the springform cake tin. Whizz the oranges to a pulp in a blender. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs before mixing through all the other ingredients and the pulped orange. 

  • Pour the mixture into the cake tin and bake for about 1 hour. It should be lightly browned and feel firm to the touch in the centre. Cool in the tin on a wire rack before turning out and serving with slices of orange, yogurt and a drizzle of honey.
