Orange cake with real oranges

This is also a great cake made with an oranges and lemons... instead of using 2 oranges, swap one out with a couple of lemons...delicious and tangy.

This is a lovely moist cake that is great with a cuppa or as dessert...

First though, you'll have to boil your oranges!

You'll need...

2 oranges  (or 1 orange and 2 lemons)
250 g caster sugar, plus extra for dusting
5 eggs
200 g almond meal
1/2 cup self raising flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup olive oil
icing sugar 

Preheat the oven to 160 deg fan forced and grease and line a 20cm cake tin

Boil the oranges in some water for about an hour, or until soft,  then let them cool completely

Once cool, process them until they are pulp

Beat the eggs, sugar and oil until light and creamy then add the pulped oranges, almond meal, flour and baking powder and mix thoroughly.
Pour the batter into the prepared cake tin and sprinkle a little caster sugar over the top.
Bake in the oven for 1 hour and 15 minutes, until the top is golden brown

That's it.

Easy and delicious

The orange and lemon cake...a little lighter with a bit of "tang"
