  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C.
  2. Put the whole oranges into a saucepan and boil gently for 20 minutes.
  3. Put the whole boiled oranges into a food processor and blitz until pureed but with some small bits of peel still visible.
  4. In a bowl, beat the egg replacer with the sugar until smooth and fluffy.
  5. Mix in the almond meal.
  6. Mix in the orange puree.
  7. Fold the flour in gently and scoop the mixture into a cake pan and level it out.
