Oranges, Almonds and Honey! Each delicious so they must be triply so together. It is orange season in the garden so I decided to try this recipe for Orange, Almond & Honey Cakes. There is no flour so it is gluten free.
¾ cup Honey
3 ½ cups Ground Almonds
1 ½ tsp Baking Powder
Add 2 of the oranges to a large pot of water. Boil for one hour or until a fork easily pierces through. Allow to cool.
Thinly slice the remaining orange into 12 slices and set aside. Best if the orange is not too big and the slices sit nicely in the bottom of a muffin tin.
Add the boiled oranges to a food processor and blitz until smooth. Add all the remaining ingredients and blend until combined.
Grease a standard size muffin tray and place one single slice of raw orange into the bottom of each cup before scooping in the batter.
Bake in the oven for 30-35 minutes at 180°C or, until when tested with a skewer it comes out clean. Remove cakes from trays and place on a wire rack, orange side up to cool.
