This beautiful moist chocolate cake is sugar, dairy, and gluten free. Perfectly sweet with a delicate hint of citrus. As there is no butter, oil or added fat in this recipe, I would say this is as healthy as cakes get. Enjoy!

2 oranges
200g ground almonds
4  heaped tbsp good quality cocoa
5  heaped tbsp honey
5 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp baking soda

Place whole oranges in a large saucepan and cover with water. Bring to the boil and boil for 1 hour. Drain and then allow to cool.

Preheat the oven to 160°C and grease a cake tin with butter. Cut oranges in half and place in to a food processor (skin pith, flesh and all). Blitz until smooth. Add the remaining cake ingredients and blitz again until smooth.

Pour in to the prepared cake tin and bake for 60 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean. Allow cake to cool completely before removing from tin or it may break. 

Once the cake has cooled down completely, dust with cocoa and enjoy!

I used a 22cm cake tin for this and it came out perfectly - a wonderful cake will be making it often.
