  • 5
    oranges - large
  • 125
  • 200
    castor sugar
  • 200
    ground almonds
  • 3
    baking powder

Slice 3 oranges into ½ cm-thick segments and bake in a 120-140ºC oven for a few hours or until crispy, but not burnt.

Place slices in a bowl with honey and a splash of boiling water and toss to coat. Set aside.

Place 2 oranges in a saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring to the boil and reduce heat to a simmer for 2 hours. Check water to ensure they don’t boil dry. Remove from heat to cool.

Preheat oven to 200ºC. Remove whole oranges from water, halve and remove pips.

Place oranges in a food processor and blend until smooth. Add remaining ingredients, except honeyed orange slices, and blitz until well combined.

Spoon mixture into a greased and lined cake tin (about 20cm), and bake for 45 minutes. Cool.
