Flourless Orange and Chocolate Cake
This cake is very easy and very delicious! One of our favourites to serve to guests.
6 large eggs
1 heaped teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
2 cups finely ground hazelnuts
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon (optional)
Place the oranges in a medium saucepan and cover with water. Bring to boil then cover, reduce heat to low and simmer until oranges are soft (about two hours).
Once the oranges are cool enough to handle, slice them in half and remove any large pips.
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees celsius.
Place the oranges in a blender and pulse until smooth. Add the remaining ingredients to the blender, and pulse until well blended.
Grease an 8-inch-round tin spring form pan.
Pour the blended mixture into the pan and bake for 45 - 60 minutes, or until an inserted toothpick/knife comes out clean.
Allow the cake to cool, then sprinkle with powdered sugar and decorate with orange peel.
