Almond & Orange Cake

almondcake

I made this for my mum coming round for dinner this weekend, was looking for something light and refreshing, it totally hit the spot. I served it with cream but you could also serve custard which I think would be nice.

The orange rind gives this cake a fragrant hint of citrus while the almond flour makes it moist and dense, so its virtually melt in the mouth.  Perfect with an afternoon cuppa.

 

Used a 20cm cake tin.

220g icing sugar (leave a little for decoration at end)

90g plain flour

90g Almond flour

Salt to taste

1/2 tsp baking powder

6 egg whites

115 g soft butter

Rind of 1 orange

 

  1. Mix all the ingredients together in a mixing bowl
  2. Preheat the oven to 180 deg, grease a cake tin.
  3. Pour mixture into the baking tin and bake for about 25-30 mins or until a skewer comes clean. Oh so yummy!
