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.

1 8-inch cake


  • 1 large orange, unpeeled

  • 1 ¾ cups almond flour

  • 2 tablespoons white sugar

  • 1 cup white sugar

  • 6 tablespoons butter, softened

  • 5 eggs

  • ½ cup all-purpose flour

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • ¼ teaspoon salt


  1. Place orange in a saucepan. Cover with water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer until orange is soft, about 30 minutes. Drain.

  2. Cut orange into chunks and discard seeds.

  3. Mix almond flour with 2 tablespoons sugar.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.
