1 cup sugar
2 cups almond meal
Cover oranges with water, bring to boil then simmer for 1 hour. Cool completely, then remove seeds (I don't bother with either), and puree. Beat eggs and sugar together, add puree and almond meal. Stir well, pour into greased cake tin and bake at 160 degrees celcius for 70 minutes. (Mine was actually done after 65 minutes, so just check it with a skewer after an hour).
That's it people! How easy is that? It's just perfect sprinkled with icing sugar and served with a generous dollop of double cream - mmmmmm.
I am wondering if I could try lemons in this with some poppy seeds, seeing as my lemon tree has been quite prolific...big word, I know...
dear friend. I am very spoilt indeed...I love the idea of this type of gift. Once my roses start to bloom and grow, I shall think of Jo each time I cut an armful to bring inside. There is so much weeding to be done, so I shall try to do a little each day this week...I just love the smell of the earth this time of the year. I am inspired to keep going...
...and I am waiting to have this little garden room paved, so I can begin planting a woodland garden...looking down from our back deck.
I will keep you updated, as this little project starts to happen. What's everyone else been up to?
