Recipe Ingredients for Orange Almond cake

1 navel orange
8 oz. slivered almonds
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
6 tablespoons unsalted butter
5 eggs

Recipe Directions for Orange Almond cake

  1. Place orange in a small saucepan and cover with water. Use a heatproof glass plate or lid on the orange to keep it submerged. Place over medium heat, bring to a boil, turn down heat and simmer 30 minutes. Remove orange and cool. Cut orange in half, and then into 4 to 6 wedges and the wedges into chunks. Set aside.

  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Generously butter a 9 inch bundt pan. Place almonds in a food processor with 2 tablespoons of sugar and process until nuts are finely ground. Remove from the processor bowl. Pour a handful of ground almonds into cake pan. Then shake pan to evenly distribute almonds. Shake off excess.

  3. Combine flour, baking soda and baking powder and salt in small bowl. Cut butter into pieces. Place orange chunks--peel, pith and all, into the food processor with the remaining sugar. Process until orange is pureed. Add the ground almonds and the butter and process until well mixed. Add eggs and process until they are integrated. Add dry ingredients and process until just combined. Immediately pour batter into cake pan and bake until cake is nicely browned and starting to coe away fro the edges, about an hour. A wood skewer inserted into the center should come out clean. When cake is cool, run a thin knife around the edges. Unmold the cake. Slice thinly and garnish with whipped topping, orange peel and almonds
