Orange Almond Cake
This version of the orange and almond meal cake is not like you will get at a cafe as you are starting with whole unblanched almonds - but it is quite satisfying to take just a few locally grown products and turn it into a sweet treat. You will need a relatively powerful food processer. While the cooking time is quite long (due to having to boil the oranges first) - it really is a very easy cake to put together. While this recipe uses oranges you can substitute for around 2 cups of stewed fruit if you like - I have some stewed peaches I canned last Summer that I sub in regularly, but you could easily stew up some of Ashbourne Valley Orchards apples. For the vegans among you, you can substitue the honey for rice malt syrup and use chia eggs (which reminds me of the poppyseed version of this style of cake).

Instructions
  1. Boil the oranges then drain and cool - most recipes seem to say an hour - but as a forgetful cook I tend to only do about 30 minutes before giving up
  2. While the oranges are cooling whizz up your whole almonds. If you are using a food processor do just one cup at a time as this will get you a more fine meal.
  3. Preheat your oven to 160 degrees C and line a 20cm spring form pan with paper
  4. Once your oranges are cool add them and the rest of the ingredients into your food processor and blend for about a minute until well combined
  5. Cook in the oven for 1 hour - test with a skewer - you might need to put it back in for an extra 15minutes or so for it to completely cook through.
