Orange Almond Cake (Flourless)

这天看到Jess (Bakericious)Mandy (缘分的天空)用烹煮过的香橙来做蛋糕,使我想起前些日子在某杂志看到的一个食谱。起初还犹豫要不要做如此多功的蛋糕,最后经老公的鼓励还是提起勇气试一试。果然没有另我们失望,这无牛油无面粉的蛋糕真的很好吃,多吃几片都不会月巴咯!嘻嘻~

 这蛋糕吃起来的口味很复杂。。。。
因为我家老公觉得甜度适中、很香、有嚼劲,
女儿虽说蛋糕有过份香甜、可松软度 + 口感都ok。
而我呢觉得它很像牛油蛋糕,而当咬到橙皮时有些许的苦涩。
不管是怎么样,我们都给它 8/10 point。。。。。值得收藏的食谱哦。嘻嘻~~

Recipe adapted from : The Food Journal - Feb 2014 (Page 20)
recipeur's tip: boiling the orange increases the flavour of the cake. Choose thicker-skinned
                       oranges as the flavour comes from the rind.

Ingredients:
1 large orange (i used medium Sunkist Navel Orange)
200g ground almond
3 large eggs, seperated (i used 70g egg - inclusive of shell)
125g sugar

Method:
1. Line an 8-inch round cake pan with parchment paper, and greased the sides and base.
2. Submerge orange in a pot of water, bring to a boil, and reduce fire to simmer for 1 hour.
3. Blend the orange, seeds included, and pour out into a mixing bowl.
4. Preheat oven to 160C.
5. Add 100g of sugar to egg yolks and beat till pale and smooth. Make sure to beat at an angle
    and ensure that the mixer goes all the way to the base, so that the liquid is fully mixed.
6. Add yolk mixture to blended oranges and mix till smooth.
7. Add 200g of ground almond to the mixture and mix in.
8. Add remaining sugar to egg whites and beat till fluffy.
9. Fold egg white and sugar mixture into the orange mixture and pour into the prepared cake pan.
10. Bake for 1 hour at 160C.
11. Slice and serve.

myme's notes:
a) I used a 7-inch round cake pan.
b) my oven temperature is 150C for 60min. At the last 20min, I covered the surface with
    aluminium foil to prevent over-burnt.
c) when blending the orange, I excluded the seeds.
