Turkish Orange Cake|
2 large oranges
1 cup caster sugar
2 tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp baking powder
3 cups ground almonds
Put the unpeeled oranges into a suacepan. Cover with water and simmer for 1 hour. Drain and leave until oranges are thoroughly cold (several hours).
Cut into quarters, remove the pips, place ina food processor and process until pulverised. Add the eggs, sugar and lemon juice and process for 1 minute.
Add the baking powder and ground almonds and pulse only to mix. Be careful not to over process.
Pour into a well-greased and lined 23cm cake tin. Bake at 180C in the middle of the oven for 50-60mins until golden and an inserted cake skewer comes out clean. Stand in the tin for 10 mins before turning out onto a cake rack to cool.
Dust with a thick layer of icing sugar. heat 2-3 metal skewers over a gas flame and when red hot, drag them through the icing sugar to make toffee stripes or a diagonal pattern.
