Flourless orange cake

Flourless orange cake

A cake made with poached orange and almond meal – with bits of ginger and lots of eggs. I think it was the unusual treatment of orange that got us going. Texturally, it is like a pudding with distinct taste of the nuts and orange. The cake took a trip with us through the Missions of California.

Recipe is from my favorite Parisian cook. Made without modification this time – although, a little less sugar and a little more ginger would have been fine. Took longer to bake in my oven.
