Blood orange cake – with a vegan option step by step

  1. In a pan of water, boil the two oranges whole for 1 hour. Cool..
  2. Preheat oven to 160C..
  3. Once the oranges are cool, blitz in a food processor/ blender til smooth-ish. I like some texture..
  4. Mix the oranges, honey, eggs and vanilla..
  5. Add the ground almonds and baking powder. Mix well..
  6. Put the mix into a lined 20cm baking tin. Bake for 40-45 mins. Let the cake cool in the tin for at least 15 mins..
  7. The cake is beautiful on its own 😍 But if you want to make a syrup, gently simmer the syrup ingredients in a pan until they reduce a bit. Then either serve on the side. Or make lots of holes in the cake when it’s baked but while still in the tin, and pour the syrup in. Enjoy πŸ˜‹.
