Orange Almond Cake

From an old friend back at Waitakere Hospial.

Orange Almond Cake:

Take 2 oranges – cover with water and simmer for 1 hour.

Remove from the stove and leave 24 hours. Discard the water.

Chop oranges into pieces (removing pips) place in the food processor and pulse until well pulverised.

Add: 6 eggs 2 tbls lemon juice and process 1 minute.

Add: 3 cups ground almonds 1 cup castor sugar 1 tsp baking powder.

Process to mix.

Bake in a large (26cm)  tin at 160 degrees Centigrade tin for 50-60 minutes. (Or until a skewer comes out clean).

Cool 10 minutes and remove from tin.

Serve it with whipped cream with a little orange liqueuer (Cointreau · Grand Marnier ) or with French Vanilla Ice cream.

If you do not eat the cake in one day refrigerate it.
