Perfect Flourless Orange Cake Recipe
This rich gluten-free cake is made with almond meal in place of flour and uses the whole orange, peel and all. Mandarins may be substituted for oranges. Serve in wedges with a dollop of whipped cream or ice cream.
I'm not sure what I did wrong--after only 30 minutes, I checked on the cake and discovered that it had already burned on the top and bottom. Unfortunately, it was all I had to serve to my guests, but they seemed to like it anyway. After you scraped off the burned parts, the cake in the middle was actually very good. I'm allergic to wheat, so for me, this recipe is worth making again. However, until I figure out how to get it to look nice, I will only be making this for myself.
I cooked this outdoors in a camp Dutch oven yesterday at our Dutch oven gathering. It was wonderful. Nothing but a couple crumbs to bring home. I had prepped by cooking the oranges the night before and I did have access to electricity so I whipped the eggs and sugar on-site before putting into my oven. After cooling pretty well, I put a paper plate on top and it fell right into it as I turned the oven upside down. Then I peeled off the parchment paper and turned it onto another paper plate where it was promptly cut and devoured. Will definitely make again.
