This is similar to the recipe my friend Judy of Divina Cucina and I made in Italy last year. I have taken the liberty of changing Judy's recipe. I wanted to make it a gluten free cake . . . without loosing any of the flavor.
2/3 cup sugar
2 oranges (you will use the whole thing)
1/2 cup almonds
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 cup flour (I used gluten free tapioca flour)
1 Tbs baking powder
Bake at 350° for 45 minutes.
Cool in pan for 5 minutes then turn out onto wire rack.
Serve with berries, or a sprinkle of powdered sugar.
