1 orange quartered
6 eggs
250g almond flour
½ cup xylitol
1 tsp baking powder                                                                                                                                                                                           vanilla extract

Sugar free icing
250g cream cheese
½ cup xylitol
Juice of 1 orange
2 tbs orange zest


  1. Place the orange quarters (make sure to remove the seeds) in the food processor and using the blade attachment, blitz until almost pureed. It is nice to see small pieces of orange peel in the final baking mix.
  2. Add all the other ingredients. Pulse until smooth.
  3. Pour into 2 greased and lined sponge tins.
  4. Bake at 180C/350F for 20-25 minutes. Test the centre with a clean fork or skewer to ensure it is cooked thoroughly.

Sugar Free Icing:

Mix all the ingredients until smooth. When the cakes are completely cold, place the first layer on the serving plate and ice with the icing mix. Place the other cake layer on top and sprinkle with tiny pieces of orange zest and orange slices.
