There is something about using almond meal in a cake that makes it so much more delicious.

Of course almond meal is expensive – so I would recommend Gluten Free Orange and Almond Cake as a special occasions type cake!

This makes for a delicious decadent dessert!

Orange Almond Cake 1 | Stay at Home




  1. Place the two whole oranges (skin and all) into a saucepan and cover with water.

  2. Bring to the boil then reduce the heat to simmer and cook with the lid on for 45 minutes or until the orange is soft to touch.

  3. Drain the oranges well, chop up coarsely (yes skin and all) and remove any seeds.

  4. Place the oranges into a food processor and puree until very smooth.

  5. In a large bowl, beat the eggs and brown sugar until pale and thick.

  6. Add the orange mixture, almond meal and baking powder and fold until just combined.

  7. Pour mixture into a round cake tin lined with baking paper.

  8. Bake for 50 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean.

  9. Pour over the orange syrup whilst the cake is still warm (leave it in the cake tin for the best result).

  10. Combine orange juice, caster sugar and water together in a saucepan.

  11. Cook stirring for five minutes or until the sugar is dissolved.

  12. Turn up the heat slightly and boil until the mixture thickens - then turn off the heat and let the syrup stand for a few minutes.

  13. Turn the gluten free orange and almond cake onto a plate carefully, slice and serve with double cream.  Truly I think the best orange cake in the whole world!

Recipe Hints and Tips:

  • Gluten Free Orange and Almond Cake is suitable for freezing only if the syrup has NOT been added.  Cool to room temperature and double wrap in plastic wrap for up to one month.
