Healthy orange & almond cake recipe

You may have seen on my social media the above pic of this delicious cake and wonderful Jurlique product I received.

As part of the Jurlique Wellness Month, the company has joined forces with Nutritionist Jacqueline Alwill of Brown Paper Nutrition.

Jacqueline created the recipe below using products from the Jurlique farm.  This cake was so delicious that I wanted to share the recipe with you so that you could make it at home!

INGREDIENTS:

Cake:

  • 2 organic oranges
  • 1 2/3 cups coconut sugar
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 carrot, peeled and grated
  • 2 1/4 cups almond meal
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

Icing:

  • 1 cup greek or vanilla yoghurt
  • 1 orange, peeled and segmented
  • 1/2 cup pomegranate arils
  • 1/4 cup calendula petals

METHOD:

  1. Wash oranges and cook in boiling water for 2 hours
  2. Drain and cool then puree
  3. Preheat oven to 160C, grease and line a 20cm spring from cake tin with greaseproof paper
  4. Beat the eggs and sugar until light in colour then stir in orange puree, carrot, almond meal and baking powder
  5. Pour into the cake tin and bake in the bottom of the oven for 1-1 1/4 hours, until top is golden
  6. Allow to cool for 30 minutes then remove from tin
  7. Top with yoghurt, orange segments, pomegranate arils and calendula petals, then serve
Different varieties of nuts are used in Jurlique products in various forms for their rich essential fatty acids. These include finely crushed almonds and walnut shells, which act as a gentle exfoliating agent to assist in the surface removal of dead skin cells. Sweet Almond is a richly protective oil, which has excellent moisturising properties and provides an emollient medium for the massage.

Macadamia seed oil has a similar composition to the skin's sebum and helps rebalance dryness while protecting from moisture loss.

Some of the Jurlique products that contain nuts and seed oils are Herbal Recovery Antioxidant Face Oil, Rose Hand Cream, Daily Exfoliating Cream and Purifying Mask
