2 Oranges – about 375 – 400gm total weight
2 1/2 cups ground almonds
1 1’4 cups sugar
1 heaped teaspoon baking powder
Boil the oranges for two hours, Cool, cut in half, remove any pips and pulp in a food processor.
Beat the eggs, then stir in almonds, sugar and baking powder, then the pulped oranges.
Using a lined 21cm tin, pour in mixture. Bake for about 1 hour at 190 deg C. Cover with tin foil after 30 – 40 mins if it is browning too quickly. Test with a skewer to see if it is done.
Lovely with morning coffee, afternoon tea or with single cream as a desert.

I bought some Nigella Lawson measuring cups when she brought out a melamine version at half the price of the china ones!
