Orange Cake...

Some weekend baking.



2 oranges
250 g caster sugar, plus extra for dusting
6 eggs
250 g almond meal
1 tsp baking powder
icing sugar
Margarine or oil spray (for greasing the pan)
Wash the oranges and cook in boiling water for 2 hours.
Drain and allow the oranges to cool before pureeing. This can be done ahead of time.

Preheat the oven to 160°C.
Butter a 20 cm springform cake tin and line with baking paper.
Place the eggs and 250 g of caster sugar in a mixing bowl and beat well.
Stir in the orange puree followed by the almond meal and baking powder.
Pour into the tin . Bake for 1–1½ hours, until the top is golden brown. Dust with icing sugar to serve.

If the top starts to get a little dark cover with another piece of baking paper (I'll do this next time!)
