Almond Orange cake for Tea Time Treat

In January Karen from Lavender and Lovage is the virtual hostess for the monthly blogging event Tea Time Treats having focus on citrus. Tea Time treat is virtual tea table runned by Karen from Lavender and Lovage and Kate from What Kate Baked, which I participate regular in with great pleasure.

Having seen, that the theme is CITRUS, I have some difficulties in selecting just one recipe, so therefore I have decided to share a selection during this coming month with the rest of guests at this virtual tea table. 

This is my third recipe, which I am sharing with the virtual tea table, and this time I have moved away from the citrus jams to an orange cake.

When you prepare the oranges for this cake you will be surrounded by a wonderful orange flavour in in the entire kitchen. The original recipe is made by Mai Knauer.

Almond Orange Cake:
Cutting the oranges is like cutting warm butter

  • 2 organic oranges
  • 1 liter water
  • 1 hand full minced dried apricot
  • 1 hand full minced fresh mint
  • 6 eggs
  • 250 g sugar
  • 275 g grounded almonds or almond flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  1. Wash the oranges. Boil them softly in 1 liter water for 2 hours.
  2. Cool down the cooked oranges.
  3. Cut the oranges into minor pieces.
  4. Add the orange pieces, apricot and mint into a blender and blend everything into a homogeneous mass.
  5. Whip the egg and sugar together into a thick mass.
  6. Add almond flour and baking powder into this egg-sugar mass
  7. Mix the orange puree into this egg-sugar mass.
  8. Fill the cake dough into a round form with a diameter of 24 cm.
  9. Bake the cake at 200'C for approx 60 minutes.
