Place unpeeled oranges in a deep saucepan of water. Boil the oranges for one – two hours or until a skewer pokes the orange easily. Let cool. Merrymaker tip: this step can be done the day before.
Once cool, food process the oranges to a pulp.
Preheat oven to 180 degrees celsius.
Line a 22cm cake tin with baking paper.
Beat the eggs and honey together until fluffy.
Add the orange pulp and blend until combined.
Add the almond meal and baking powder and stir until combined.
Pour the batter into the prepared cake tin.
Bake in preheated oven for 30-35 minutes. The top will be golden brown.
Let the cake cool for 10 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack. Cool completely.
Heat one tbs of raw honey in a microwave for 20 seconds (add some water if using a thick honey).
Brush the honey over the top of the cake and garnish with blanched almonds.
Serve with whipped coconut cream!


  • Three small oranges
  • Six eggs
  • Two and a half cups of almond meal
  • Half a cup of raw honey (plus an extra tbs for the glaze)
  • One tbs baking powder

    After oranges are cooled do you peel them at that point or are u processing the entire orange peel and all??

    This is just not a great recipe. I got as far as pureeing the oranges and tasted that. It was so bitter and horrible. I couldn’t go on and waste the expensive ingredients. I can’t imagine putting the pith of an orange in anything that humans are going to eat. I hope the creators will clarify the recipe. It could be good with better instructions for the oranges.

    Of course you didn’t like it when it was just the oranges. That’s like saying you made the muffin batter but hadn’t yet added any fruit or sweetener and scrapping the project then and there. I haven’t tried this recipe, but I have tried others very similar and they are just delicious once they are finished. Why not see something through? Generally things don’t look great when you’re just beginning. You have to fit all the pieces together to make a whole.

    What Jade said: the recipe is very good, I’ve made it before and there’s no problem with including the peel and pith (think of marmalade!).
