I’m not sure what I love most about this cake – the delightful smell that permeates the whole house while it cooks, or the soft, moist texture, or the tangy-sweet orange flavour!
I don’t bother to boil the oranges for the ‘Boiled Orange and Almond’ cake in the Thermomix Everyday Cookbook – why bother boiling oranges for 40 minutes when it’s fresher tasting and just as yummy this way? Not to mention MUCH quicker!! I also add a few more ‘tweaks’ along the way to reduce the sugar, and make it a healthier version of the original.
This is a cake that everyone will enjoy, whether they’re used to eating gluten free or not. It is also dairy free and naturally sweetened. You can use two oranges, or an orange and a lime, orange and lemon… whatever combination you like. If you use lemon-lime, you will need to increase the Rapadura and/or stevia a little.
