Flourless Orange Cake

Flourless Orange Cake

This cake is a bit of work, but, it comes out great and is something a little bit different. This is a Passover recipe that can be used all year round.  It is also gluten free.


2 whole oranges

6 eggs

1 ¼ c white sugar

½ t baking powder

1 ¼ c ground nuts (they recommend almonds, but I used filberts, and it smelled great)


Place oranges in pot of water, and boil for 2 hours over medium heat.  Allow oranges to cool.  Cut them open and remove seeds (I used a navel orange, no seeds).  Process in a blender or food processor to a coarse pulp.

Preheat oven to 3750F

Grease a 10 inch spring form pan and line with parchment paper.  You could also dust instead with potato starch, but I like parchment better).

Whip eggs and sugar together for about 10 minutes

Mix in baking powder.

Stir in pureed orange.  Gently fold in ground nuts.  Pour into pan and bake for 55 minutes.
