Recipe type: Cakes
Serves: 12 pieces
Ingredients
Cake Mixture
  • 3 medium oranges
  • 250gm almond meal (I grind my own)
  • ½ c honey, melted
  • 1 t vanilla essence
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 t baking powder
Topping
  • 2 medium oranges, peeled and pith completely removed, cut into thin slices
  • ⅓ c sugar free chocolate drops, melted over a double boiler and put into a piping bag
To Serve
  • a dollop of unsweetened natural yoghurt or whipped cream
Instructions
  1. Place the oranges in a pot, cover with plenty of water, cover and bring to the boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook for 2 hours. Alternatively, cook in a pressure cooker for 30 minutes.
  2. Once the oranges are cooked, drain and allow to cool completely. Once cooled, chop them into even rough chunks (skin and all) and remove any seeds that may be present.
  3. Preheat your oven to 180 C and grease and line a 20cm springform cake tin.
  4. Place the cooled, chopped orange segments along with the eggs, honey and vanilla into a food processor and blend for a minute until well combined. Add the almond flour and baking powder and blend until you have a smooth batter.
  5. Pour the cake batter into the springform tin and cook for approximately 40-45 minutes, or until skewer comes out clean.
  6. Allow the cake to cool in the tin for 10 minutes before releasing it and allow to cool completely on a wire rack.
  7. Arrange the sliced oranges over the top, and finish off with the drizzled melted chocolate.
  8. Serve it with unsweetened natural yoghurt or a dollop of whipped cream.
