I found this recipe in an old magazine, decided to try it on a whim, and it soon became my family's favorite cake! Works really well as a side to coffee.

  • Cut orange into chunks and discard seeds.

  • Mix almond flour with 2 tablespoons sugar.

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease an 8-inch cake pan and coat the pan with a handful of the almond-sugar mixture.

  • Combine orange chunks and 1 cup sugar in a food processor; pulse until pureed. Add almond flour mixture and butter; process until smooth. Add eggs; mix until smooth. Add flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; process until just combined. Pour batter into the prepared cake pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 35 to 45 minutes.

Cook's Note:

If you're a fan of citrus, add one more orange.
