This was one of those I have a whole heap of fruit left over that wont be eaten, so lets get baking moments. …
This was a real treat, without all the nasties and super easy to make… I had so many oranges that I made two cakes and made a double tier cake.. No special occasion, just for the hell of it and to use up some fruit and the kids looooved it….
- 2 Large Oranges
- 6 eggs
- 1 1/2 cups Almonds (Ground into flour)
- 1 tsp of baking powder
- 1/2 tsp of Bicarb of soda
- 2 cups of Coconut sugar ( You could also use Raw)
- 1 1/4 cup of Cacao powder
- 2 large ripe avocados
- 1/2 cup Agave
- 1/2 cup Cacao Powder
- 2 tbsp of Coconut Oil
Place oranges in a pot with water and Boil for 2 hours, then cool..
If you are using whole almonds you can prepare these by placing in a food processor, place on high until a flour like texture has formed.
Once cooled cut oranges in half, remove any pips, then place in a food processor and blend until its a pulp form.
Preheat oven to 180 degrees and line a round baking tin with baking paper.
Place all other cake ingredients into the food processor and blend until you have a nice consistent mixture, pour ingredients into cake tin and bake for 45mins, depending on your oven. Make sure you keep an eye on it. You should be able to place a knife in the middle and it come out clean, this way you no its ready..
While cake is cooking prepare your Avocado Frosting.
Avocado Frosting – Place all ingredients in a food processor and blend until you have a creamy consistency like frosting.
Once cake is cooked allow to cool before you frost it.
Voila…. Your cake is now ready to eat!!!!
Remember the above recipe is only for one cake, if you want to make a two tier cake like the one in the picture double the recipe and evenly separate the mixture between to baking tins..
I decorated my cake with cacao nibs and sliced orange I also had a layer of the Avocado Frosting in the middle of the two cakes..
