Method

 
Boil the unpeeled oranges in water for 1 hour. When cool, remove seeds and blitz with skins on to a smooth pulp. Add honey.

Beat eggs and castor sugar well until light and fluffy. Combine nuts and blitz to resemble coarse crumbs. Add cornflour and baking powder and fold into egg mixture.  Mix well and fold into oranges. 

Place mixture into a greased round spring form cake tin and bake at 180°C for 45 – 50 minutes. 

In a small saucepan, bring the syrup ingredients to a simmer until the sugar has dissolved. Pour over orange cake as soon as it comes out of the oven. Leave to cool.

Serve with Sour cream.

Tip of the day

 
White pepper
Use white pepper when making pale, creamy sauces or clear stock because it won't discolour the sauce.
