Preparation and Cooking time: 80 to 90 mins


  • 3 oranges (try to buy the heavy ones – juicy and thin peel)
  • 3 eggs (preferably organic)
  • ½ cup honey (or rice syrup/date syrup)
  • 2 cups almond flour (or almond ground)
  • ½ tbsp baking soda


1 Rinse the oranges, take the peel off and place the oranges in a blender. Blend for approximately 1 minutes until the oranges have formed a puree.

2 To make the ground pistachios place them in a coffee grinder or food processor and grind until there are no chunky pieces and everything has ground down to a fine powder.

3 Preheat oven to 180oC. Grease a loose bottom cake pan with olive oil.

4 In a bowl combine the orange puree, eggs, honey, ground pistachios, almond flour, vanilla extract, olive oil and baking soda. Pour into the greased cake pan.

5 Bake for 50-60 min. If the top begins to brown too quickly, cover with tinfoil. The cake will be done once a cake inserted into the top comes out clean.

TIP | If making the dried orange slices from scratch, wash an orange and using a sharp knife thinly cut it into slices no thicker then 0.5cm. Place the slices on a parchment paper lined baking sheet and bake for one hour at 150º C, flipping half way through baking to ensure they don’t burn.
