Boiled orange and almond cake cake

I love oranges and this cake is full of orange flavor ,moist and has a lovely texture. Also very easy to make. Only boiling the oranges takes some time but then you just mix all ingredients together in a food processor or use a hand blender. Best to use are our Maltese oranges .


  • 2 oranges
  • 185g melted butter
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 1/4 sifted self raising flour  (if you do not want to use ground almonds use 1 3/4 cups self raising flour)
  • 1/2 cup ground almonds
  • 1 cup sugar


  1. Wash and boil the oranges for 2 hours ,check on it and top up water if needed.
  2. Let the oranges cool a bit then cut and discard pips .
  3. Put it in a food processor and blend.
  4. Add the other ingredients and blend until smooth.
  5. Put batter in a greased and floured tin and bake in a 170 C oven ,check if its done with skewer or toothpick.
