    Ground almonds take the place of flour in this cake, thus making it a torte. Whole oranges and yoghurt give it a tangy flavour.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 10 

    • 5 large oranges
    • 6 eggs, beaten
    • 2 1/4 cups ground almonds
    • 1 1/4 cups caster sugar
    • 1 teaspoon baking powder
    • 1 cup plain low fat yoghurt

    Directions

    1. Wash 2 of the oranges and place in a saucepan with water to cover. Bring to the boil, cover and simmer for 2 hours. Allow the oranges to cool, then cut open, remove the pips and roughly chop the flesh.
    2. Preheat the oven to 190 degrees C. Grease and flour a 22cm springform cake tin. Process the cooked oranges, eggs, ground almonds, sugar and baking powder in a food processor.
    3. Pour the batter into the prepared cake tin. Bake for 1 hour or until the centre is firm (note that this is a very moist cake). Cool in the tin before gently turning out.
    4. Peel the remaining oranges with a small paring knife. Separate the orange segments from the membranes. Serve the cake with the fresh orange segments and some yoghurt on the side.
