More taste, less waste: Used orange & almond cake

Save your juiced orange halves and make this tasty afternoon treat. You can also use oranges that are starting to turn bad – cut the soft or bad parts out and use the rest in this recipe.


PREP: 15 minutes

COOK: 2 hours

4 used orange halves

butter or oil, for greasing

5 eggs, beaten

200g ground almonds

200g caster sugar

¾ tsp baking powder

100g dark chocolate, melted, to decorate

  • Put the orange halves in a saucepan, cover with water and bring to the boil. Cover and simmer for 1 hour 15 minutes, checking water levels regularly. Remove and set aside to cool.
  • Preheat the oven to 180C/ 160C fan/gas 4 and grease a 20cm round springform cake tin. Roughly chop the cooked oranges and transfer to a food processor or blender. Add the eggs, ground almonds, caster sugar and baking powder, and blitz to combine.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared tin and smooth the top. Bake for 35-40 minutes, or until a skewer inserted at the centre of the cake comes out clean. Leave to cool completely before removing from the tin, then drizzle with melted chocolate to finish.
