- 150 grams raw almonds
- 1 Navel Orange, cut into quarters
- 150 g Coconut Sugar, or sweetener of choice, (eg: caster sugar, golden/raw caster sugar)
- 3 Eggs, separated
- 50 g raw cacao powder
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- pinch sea salt
Preheat oven to 160 deg. celcius (fan-forced). Grease and line a 20 cm springform cake tin.
Add almonds to TM bowl and mill for 10 secs / sp 9. Set aside.
Add orange to TM bowl and chop for 15 secs / sp 9. Add sugar and egg yolks and mix for 10 secs / sp 4.
Add reserved almond meal, cacao and baking powder and mix for 5 secs / sp 4. Scrape down bowl and repeat.
If you have a second TM bowl/blade, swap to clean bowl now and add butterfly. Alternatively, pour chocolate cake mixture into a large separate bowl and clean and dry TM bowl really well.
Add egg whites and salt to TM bowl and insert butterfly attachment. Whisk for 3 mins / sp. 3.5.
If using 2nd bowl/blade - swap back to TM bowl with cake mix. Add a heaped spoonful of whipped egg white to cake mix to 'loosen' and stir for 10 secs / sp 2. Add remainder of egg whites and mix for 10 secs / speed 2. Scrape down and repeat if necessary until just combined. Be careful not to overmix.
If using single TM bowl - Add a heaped spoonful of whipped egg white to your separate bowl with cake mix and gently stir to 'loosen' with TM spatula. Pour in remainder of egg white and fold into cake mixture.
Pour into cake tin and bake in oven for 35 mins or until a skewer inserted comes out clean. Cool in tin.
I used Billington's Golden Granulated Sugar in this recipe and it was lovely. The original basis for this recipe was published in Taste Magazine using coconut sugar which can now be found in most supermarkets.
