1

Wash the oranges and boil them whole for 1 ½ hours, or until soft.

Preheat the oven to 180C. Grease and line a cake tin.

Place whole oranges (peel and all) in a thermomix or food processor and blend until smooth.

4

Process in eggs, coconut oil or butter, sugar or honey, almond flour, salt and baking soda until combined.

5

Pour batter into the cake tin and bake for 45 Minutes to 50 Minutes, until golden brown and cooked through. Do not overcook as you want this to be moist.

Meanwhile, make the ganache. Once it is ready spread over the cooled cake and top with sliced oranges. Place in the fridge to set.
