4 Eggs – Separated
1/2 Cup sugar
1 Cup of Ground Almonds
1 Teaspoon orange liqueur (optional)
Candied Oranges Slices
1 Cup of water
1/2 Cup of orange juice (no pulp)
1/2 Cup of sugar
1 Cinnamon stick
1 Orange ( I like to use blood orange) sliced 0.25inch thick
Beat the egg yolks, sugar until fluffy. Add orange liqueur then slowly add the ground almonds.
In a separate blow beat egg white until stiff. (You know it is down if the mixture doesn’t slide around).
Fold the egg whites into the egg yolks.
Grease and flour a 8 inch cake pan and bake it in the oven for 350F for 45 min.
Sauce and orange slices
In a pan add in water, orange juice and sugar and bring it to a boil. Then add in orange slices and cook them over medium heat. Turn them occasionally and the orange cook till the liquid is turned in to a thin syrup. Turn the heat down to low heat and cook it till no the cake is ready or no longer then around 25-30 min.
Place the oranges on top of the cake and pour the sauce on top.
