This is one of the easiest cake recipes ever! It’s delicious and super healthy – how often do you find that in a cake?
It’s gluten-free and fat- free – but you would never know.
The recipe is from a friend of mine who is allergic to gluten and she is a master in creating the very best of recipes. This one is originally an orange cake, and it’s so good that I have made it a million times, but one day I thought, hmm chocolate…….in this? I mean, dark bitter chocolate, oranges and almonds……it could only be good and it was.
Almond Orange Chocolate Cake
4 organic oranges
6 organic free range eggs
150g raw sugar
250g raw almonds
150g good dark chocolate
1 large teaspoon baking powder
1 vanilla pod
You boil the oranges in water for 2 hours, allow them to cool. Melt the chocolate and allow it to cool slightly. In the blender, blend the almonds into flour, then add the sugar, roughly chop the oranges and take out the pips, then put it, including the peel (no pips) into the blender along with the rest of the ingredients – blend into a dough.
Put the dough into a very well greased cake tin and cook in the oven for about 35 min at 360F
Serve the cake with some stewed berries or some orange sauce.
Let’s face it, a nice creamy chocolate cake does a lot for a lot of people; It does for me. Audrey Hepburn
