Gluten Free Almond And Orange Flourless Cake

This Almond and orange flourless cake is all made in the blender and you don't even need to peel the orange. it goes in peel'n'all. By using the peel, you only need 1 orange so lowers the carbs in the cake.


Ingredients:

Almond and Orange Flourless Cake

  • 1 orange quartered
  • 6 eggs - medium
  • 250 g almond meal/flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 4 tbsp granulated sweetener of choice or more, to your taste
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp salt


Sugar Free Icing

  • 50 g powdered sweetener
  • 2 tbsp orange zest


Instructions:

Almond and Orange Flourless Cake

  1. Place the orange quarters (make sure to remove and seeds) in the food processor and using the blade attachment, blitz until almost pureed. It is nice to see small pieces of orange peel in the final baking mix.
  2. Add all the other ingredients. Pulse until smooth.
  3. Pour into 2 greased and lined sponge tins.
  4. Bake at 180C/350F for 20-25 minutes. Test the centre with a clean fork or skewer to ensure it is cooked thoroughly.

Sugar Free Icing

  1. Mix the softened cream cheese with the natural yoghurt with a fork until smooth.
  2. Add the orange zest and powdered sweetener.
  3. When the cakes are completely cold, place the first layer on the serving plate and ice with the icing mix. Place the other cake layer on top and sprinkle with the sugar free icing mix and tiny pieces of orange zest and orange slices.


NOTES:

  • You may also bake this as 1 large cake, but it will need baking for 30-40 minutes.
