2 small or 1 large Orange or Lemon
1 heaped tsp Gluten Free Baking Powder
250g Ground Almonds
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
250g Caster Sugar
Put the whole oranges or lemons in a pot with cold water, bring to the boil and simmer for 1 hour. Drain and cool. Put in a food processor and pulp. Then add eggs, baking powder, baking soda, ground almonds and caster sugar into the food processor and blend until mixed. Pour into a spring-form tin. Bake at 180°C for an hour. Check after 45 minutes as it may need to be covered with tin foil to stop the top from burning. Insert a skewer to see if cooked. Leave to cool in the tin. Once cold, remove from tin. I like to sprinkle sliced almonds on top before baking for decoration as it doesn’t need icing. Or decorate with slices of fruit.
