Almond and Orange cake with strawberry sauce

  • 3 Large Oranges
  • 280 Grams of Almond Flour
  • 4 tbsp xylitol ( u can use any other sweetener to your taste )
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon of Bicarbonate of Soda
  • 4 teaspoons of Amaretto

Place the 3 oranges in a pan of water and boil for one hour.  Remove from the water and refrigerate whole over night.  

Cut oranges into 3 or 4 pieces each then blend until they form a paste, remove from blender and keep aside.

Next blend the 6 eggs with the sweetener, then add and blend in the almond flour and the bicarbonate of soda.  

Add the orange paste and mix with a spoon (don't blend), finally mix in the Amaretto (also with a spoon).

Pour the mix in a cake tin and place in an oven at 180 degrees for 45 minutes.  

For a sauce take some fresh organic strawberries, place in a pan and heat.  Once the mix starts bubbling add sweetener (to taste), some brandy (lots of it) and some vanilla cook out for a while. Then let the sauce cool and spoon to the side of the cake.
