I made this cake.
This is Nigella Lawson's recipe. I was curious about it with the fact it has no flour or butter, which I consider to be important for cake. Also, I found some almonds in the freezer and I had no idea how old they were. And I had some clementines that were too dry to eat but I am sure would be flavorful. And this recipe was just so foreign I had to try it. You boil oranges for two hours? You add whole boiled oranges? How good is this?
It is a bit eggy with a texture like tamogoyaki. And a similar sweetness level. The only things I did differently in the recipe were I added 2 tablespoons of vanilla. and a teaspoon of salt, because I think in sweets you should always add a bit of salt. I did this all in the food processor. I actually had slivered almonds that I ground into the almond flour.
Would I make it again? Only if I find myself with almonds in the freezer of an unknown province and and more dry clementines. Probably next year at this time.
