Orange Polenta Cake


Preparation: 1 hour

Baking Time: 20-25 mins


Ingredients

1 orange

120g sugar

3 eggs

100g ground almonds

25g polenta

15g plain flour (or gluten-free alternative)

1 tsp baking powder


All ingredients available from Zéro!


Materials

1 mixing bowl

1 blender

1 saucepan

1 cake tin


Step 1

Place the whole orange in a saucepan and cover with water. Bring to the boil and simmer for 1 hour, until soft.

Leave the skin on, nothing gets wasted here!


Step 2

When the orange feels soft, drain the water (optional: set aside the cooking water to make a syrup) and blend the whole orange with the blender to a smooth purée.

Step 3

Mix the eggs and orange purée together.


Step 4

In a mixing bowl, mix the ground almonds, polenta, flour and baking powder together.


Step 5

Add the eggs and orange mix to the dry ingredients and mix well.


Step 6

Bake at 160˚ C (140˚ C fan oven) for 20-25mins.

When the cake is baked, you will notice that the edges of the cake begin to shrink away from the sides of the tin.


Optional: you can use the orange's cooking water to make a syrup while the cake is baking and pour it on top of the cake just before serving to add a glaze!
