I wanted something yummy and fun for Easter Dinner dessert and ran across this cake on Pinterest. Its pretty simple, but I had to do some finagling to convert it from European Measures to US. I’ve NEVER heard of making a cake with boiled oranges but this worked well. The icing sugar on top of the almonds is just the perfect touch of sweet. I’d like to try this with a glaze on top as well – maybe add some poppy seeds?
I added the almond extract to the original recipe as well, just an extra little kick of almond to go with all the orange. Be sure you bake for the full time – at 1 hour, the toothpick came out clean – but the bottom/middle needed more time – especially when I used an 8″ pan. I recommend 1 hr 20 minutes for the 9″ pan – 1 hour 35-40 min for the 8″ pan
