In winter time orange trees are full of ripe oranges tempting us to turn them into some amazing juicy desserts. The possibilities are endless, starting from moist cakes, crunchy cookies or creamy tarts.
Our favourite is this flourless orange cake made with almond flour (almond flour is made from blanched almonds that are ground and sifted into a fine flour) which is naturally gluten-free and therefore suitable for those on a gluten-free diet.
In this recipes be sure to use non-treated oranges as you will use the flash and the peel by smashing them into orange pureé. This is why this cake has a bit of bitterness when you eat it.
We decorated the cake with flaked almonds which becomes toasted during the baking making an interesting contrast to the soft cake. At the end we dusted the cake with some icing sugar!
