Chocolate Orange and Almond Cake

Yields8 Servings

I love the combination of orange and chocolate. This is a beautiful dessert for a special occasion.

 2 organic oranges
 4 organic eggs
 .75 honey or 1 cup Changing Habits Rapadura Sugar
 2.25 cups almond meal
 .25 cup coconut oil, butter or ghee
 .5 tsp Changing Habits Seaweed Salt
 1 tsp baking soda
 A mixture of melted coconut cream, cacao melts and honey to taste.
 Sliced oranges for garnishing

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.


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


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.


Once ready, remove from the oven and allow to cool in the tin.


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


Slice, serve and enjoy! You can serve with whipped cream, yoghurt, kefir, fruit or plain.
