Paleo orange and almond cake

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!
