I love this Fresh Paleo Orange Cake. It's great for the summer months. It does has a slight bitter taste because the whole orange is used but it is still delicious.
When I make this again I will use smaller oranges as I think my oranges were too big and it was too moist if that is possible. I couldn't cook the Fresh Paleo Orange Cake any longer than I did because the whole cake would have burnt so I took it out of the oven a little earlier than I would have liked.
I am still trying to master making cakes using almond meal. They burn quickly and don't get a chance to cook in the centre.
Anyway this is a delicious moist cake that has a zingy orange flavour and is absolutely delightful. This Fresh Paleo Orange Cake recipe does make a large cake. If you want to make a smaller one just half the mixture and use a loaf tin. I think I may do that next time.
Fresh Paleo Orange Cake
2 medium sized oranges
3/4 cups honey
2 cups almond flour
1 tsp baking powder
Wash the oranges place them in a saucepan, cover with water and boil whole for 2 hours. Discard water.
Remove any pips then cut up oranges, place in a food processor and blend until smooth.
Love that bright orange colour. Makes this cake such a joy to make.
Whisk eggs by hand then add honey and whisk again until combined.
Add in almond flour and baking powder and mix well.
Lastly add the orange puree to the batter.
And mix until well combined.
Pour batter into a greased 22/23cm 9-inch round spring form cake tin.
Bake at 190C/375F for 60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean.
Decorate as you choose. I was naughty and crumbled a Flake chocolate bar over the top but you can grate dark chocolate over the top or leave as is. It's great with a side of lactose free vanilla ice cream. Divine!
