spanish orange and almond cake – no lactose, no gluten!

as it is sunday, it was one of those rare cake days. obviously high in carbs, but free from gluten and lactose. needless to say that it is delicious as well!

as one needs to follow recipes more closely for cakes than for cooking, i prefer sharing where it comes from, explained step by step:

what makes this so moist and yummy (with no added fat, neither butter nor oil of any sort) is the amount of ground almonds and the two whole oranges (yes, whole! peel and flesh and all. extremely important to use unwaxed organic oranges!!!). in the recipe it asks for a tablespoon of water, but i used grand marnier (orange liqueur), just because i felt like 🙂

as there are no grains in the cake, it is very light and fluffy and will make you eat slice after slice…
