Flourless Citrus Cake

  • 375 grams citrus fruit, we used pink grapefruit
  • 6 eggs, large
  • 200 grams caster sugar
  • 250 grams ground almonds
  • 1 tsp baking powder

Recipe's preparation

  1. Place citrus fruits, whole, into a saucepan of water. Bring to the boil and simmer for 2 hours. Remove whole fruit from water and allow to cool.
  2. Preheat oven to 190°C/fan 170°C/gas 5.

    Halve the cooled fruits and remove any pips. Add to mixing bowl and chop 7 sec/speed 5. Scrape down sides of mixing bowl with spatula.
  3. Add eggs, sugar, ground almonds and baking powder to mixing bowl and mix 7 sec/speed 5.
  4. Pour batter into prepared tin and bake for 1 hour, or when a skewer comes out clean.

    NB - check the cake after 40 minutes as you may need to cover with foil/baking paper to ensure the top does not burn.
  5. Remove from oven and place tin on rack. Allow cake to cool completely before turning out onto a cake stand or plate.

Accessories you need



We served our cake with candied rind but this cake is wonderful served all on its own or with a simple dollop of creme fraiche.

This recipe is based on Nigella's famous Clementine Cake.
