560g almond meal
375g white sugar
1.5 tsp baking powder
Orange Cardamom Sauce
400ml freshly squeezed orange juice
50g white sugar
4g cardamom seeds
Boil oranges whole for an hour, deseed if needed and blend (with skin on) until pureed.
Whisk egg and sugar until half thick (or whack in food processor if you couldn’t be bothered), then add almond meal and baking powder and stir gently with a spatula to combine.
Add orange puree. Pour mixture into round tin and bake in oven for 40 minutes at 150ºC.
For the sauce, put all ingredients in saucepan. Bring to the boil then simmer until thick. Serve warm with cake and good yoghurt.
