Cutie Cake ~ Orange Olive Oil Cake

Do y'all love these cuties?
That is what these tangerines are called at the Piggly Wiggly . . . is that just an Alabama thing?

I decided to try to adapt this Citrus Olive Oil Cake making it a Cutie Cake. . .

Orange Olive Oil Cake
3 eggs
1/2 cup sugar
6-8 tangerines (you will use the whole thing)
1/2 cup almonds
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 cup flour (I used gluten free baking flour)
1 Tbs baking powder

Peel the oranges and place the peels and the orange sections in a deep mixing bowl, add skinless almonds. With an immersion blender, grind the oranges and almonds to a pulp.
Add eggs and sugar and whisk together till well combined.
Add olive oil, stirring until smooth. (taste to see if you need more sugar) Stir in flour and baking powder. The batter will be slightly lumpy with bits of orange peel. Pour into a greased 8" bundt or round cake pan.
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.
Y'all enjoy ~
