Whole Orange Flourless Sugarless Gluten-Free Cake with a Jaffa Twist

My partner is trying to rid our house of high processed flours and refined sugars, he is fighting a loosing battle, but god love him for trying.  So I am succumbing to attempts at trying to find ways to make delicious cakes with occasionally less sugars.  Then I stumbled and adjusted this little beauty, not only white sugar free and flourless but also gluten free too..... But hey I just can't help it.... I added chocolate frosting sprinkles!


Whole Orange Cake

(Gluten-Free, Sugar-Free, Flourless)

2 Whole Oranges
6 Eggs
1 cup Organic Honey
250g Almond Meal
1 tsp Baking Powder

Wash your 2 oranges to remove dirt or wax, then place them both into a large saucepan and cover with water and bring to the boil them on a high heat, then turn down to a simmer and cover with a lid. Allow to simmer for 1 hour.  Remove them from the water after the hour and place them on a plate to reduce to room temperature.

Once the oranges are at room temp, cut them in half through cross section, remove seeds, then cut them into 8 pieces, leaving skin on, then place the orange pieces into the food processor, pulse the orange until a puree.

Crack your 6 eggs into the mixer and whisk on high for 5 minutes, this will get them into a high froth of beautiful fluffy pale orange colour.

Then add in your honey and remain beating mix on high to stay fluffy.  Then pour in your orange pulp from the food processor.

Finally add in your almond meal and baking powder and mix through well.

Pre heat your oven to 170 degrees (150 fan forced).  Prepare your springform tin with butter and flour, pour your cake mix into the prepared pan.  Place into the oven and bake for 1 hour.

Allow the cake to cool before removing from the pan.  

Ice your cake with your choice of frosting (or nothing to keep it completely healthy), I went for Chocolate to create a Jaffa flavour.
