Whole Orange Almond & Vanilla Cake

Orange almond cake 2

Could the world possibly need another whole orange cake recipe? I’m sure this popular recipe that has been tweaked many times over so here is my version to join all the others. The original recipes had the oranges being boiled for about 1 hour, I just love how the Thermomix makes this such an easy recipe but whizzing up the almonds into almond meal & whizzing up the whole oranges, plus it’s a great one for all those that love gluten free food.

Not many ingredients & it’s super easy to make.

Mill 250g almonds, 200g raw sugar & 2/3 of a vanilla bean with 2/3 tsp cream of tartar & 1/3 of a tsp bicarb soda for 20 secs speed 9.

 

Add 2 oranges that have been cut in half & 3 eggs chop on speed 7 for 10 secs, scrape down the bowl & repeat. Pour into a lined & greased 20 cm tin & bake for 45 mins at 180 degrees.

While the cake is cooking, place 50g sugar & 1/3 vanilla bean with zest from 1 orange into the TM bowl & chop for 20 secs speed 10. scrape down the bowl & add 50g orange juice cooking for 5 mins 100 degrees speed 1 & then add 25g butter & cook for 3 mins 80 degrees speed 1.

 

Skewer the hot cake a few times & pour the syrup over.

Here is the Thermomix in Australia recipe for the Brazilian Cheese Puffs.

What’s not to love? They are quick, easy, cheesy & delicious – plus they are gluten free! After chopping the cheese everything goes into the bowl & then poured into a mini muffin tin that has been oiled. Bake for up to 15 mins in a hot oven. Perfect for an after school snack or even a lunchbox snack.
