Made with whole oranges and ground almonds, this Classic Spanish cake has a moist, light texture and a wonderful fresh flavour. The use of almond flour makes this torte/cake gluten free.

Recipe adapted from allrecipes.co.uk

  1. Put the chopped oranges in a small saucepan, discarding any pips. Add enough water to cover the oranges then put the lid on and cook gently for 30 minutes or until the oranges are soft and excess liquid has evaporated. Leave it to cool down.
  2. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C/160 fan-assisted/350 F/gas 4.. Line the bottom and sides of a 9 inch springform cake tin with baking parchment. Finely chop the oranges using a food processor or blender, or with a knife.
  3. Put the egg whites in a large clean and dry bowl and whisk until they form stiff peaks. Gradually whisk in half the caster sugar, then whisk for 1 minute.
  4. Using the same whisk, whisk the egg yolks with the remaining caster sugar in another bowl for 2–3 minutes or until pale and quite thick. Whisk in the finely chopped oranges and then carefully fold in the ground almonds.
  5. Stir in 3 spoonfuls of the whisked egg white to loosen the mixture and then gently fold in the remaining whites with a large metal spoon. Transfer the mixture to the prepared tin and level the top. Sprinkle with the flaked almonds.
  6. Bake for 50–55 minutes or until the cake is golden and a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean. Check the cake after 20 minutes and again at 30 minutes, and cover lightly with foil if it is browning too quickly.
  7. Leave the cake to cool in the tin, then take it out, peel away the lining paper and transfer to a serving plate. Dust with icing sugar before serving. The cake can be kept in an airtight tin for up to 2 days.
