Ingredients

  • Sticky Orange Topping:
  • 220g castor sugar
  • 125ml water
  • 1 vanilla pod, split
  • 2 oranges, very thinly sliced
  • The Cake:
  • 4 large eggs
  • 220g castor sugar
  • 5ml vanilla extract
  • 150g self-raising flour
  • 150g butter, melted
  • 110f ground almonds

Method

    1. Preheat the oven to 160C.
    2. For the sticky orange topping: Place sugar, water and vanilla in a 2.5 liter, 20cm non-stick frying pan that is ovenproof, over a medium heat. Stir continuously until the sugar has dissolved. Add the orange slices and simmer until soft, for about 15 minutes. Remove from the heat and set aside.
    3. For the cake: Place eggs, sugar and vanilla in a bowl of an electric mixer and whisk until thick, pale and bout tripled in volume, about 8-10 minutes.
    4. Sift the flour over the egg mixture and fold through. Fold through the melted butter and ground almonds.
    5. Pour the cake mixture over the oranges and bake about 40-45 minutes, or a skewer comes out clean.
    6. Turn out on a platter to serve.

Great recipe! Everyone loved it. I made it twice though. The first time I followed the instructions and it was a bit dry, the second time I did it a bit like Mary Berry's lemon drizzle cake, I poked holes and drizzled the remaining syrup...unless I was supposed to add all the syrup at the start - but this was not clear.

I Served with thick cream. Very nice...
