A cake that reminds you of ‘Terry’s Chocolate Orange’.
A top favorite of mine as this cake is naturally gluten free since it is flourless! It is seriously delicious and makes an elegant dessert any time. This is adapted from Nigella Lawsons’ “Feast Cookery Book”.

Ingredients

Chocolate Ganache

    Directions

    Step 1

    Put the oranges in a saucepan, cover with water. Boil until soft for approximately 1 hour until soft.  Drain, then quarter each orange, removing  seeds if any. 

    Step 2

    Pulse the oranges in a food processor, peel and all.  You will be needing approximately 375g of this pulp. Add the rest of the ingredients to the pulp you have in the food processor and pulse until the mixture comes together. 

    Step 3

    Preheat oven to 180C.  Grease and line a 20 cm springform baking tin with baking paper.  

    Step 4

    Pour this batter into the prepared tin, and bake for 50 minutes to an hour or until a skewer inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean. Let the cake cool before removing from tin. 

    Step 5

    To make the chocolate ganache, break up 125g of dark chocolate in a heatproof bowl.  Bring 125ml of cream to the boil. Pour the hot cream on top of the chocolate, leave for a minute and stir well to combine. Using a spatula, spread over the sides and top of the orange cake.  Leave to set.

    Step 6

    You can decorate the cake with Cioccolini Cookies by Dr Schar by placing them on top, all around the edge of the cake.

    Hi, I'm Jacqui, creator of The Blender and Senza G. I was diagnosed with Celiac disease in 2012 and since then, gluten free cooking has become a passion of mine. I just love food, experimenting and creating new gluten free recipes or re-inventing old favorite ones so I can still enjoy what I used to love before. Being Celiac makes cooking more challenging but with loads of patience, intensive research and a burning desire to learn more and more, living the Gluten Free lifestyle has become much much easier. My mission has been that gluten free food should taste good. Gluten Free does not mean taste free and I will keep on working to discover new ways of making it even better! ❤️
