Citrus Almond Syrup Cake.

Hello everybody.

Morning gathering at my friend’s house with the loveliest ladies ever ,my  old school classmates, great memories and lots of catching up cause it’s been a while since we saw each other.

My friend did many delicious dishes,pastries, tabouleh,cheesecake and chocolate balls , as for me I baked this super easy juicy cake this morning and took it with me.

By the way this cake is flour-less , very convenient for people who has flour sensitivity  ( Celiac desease)

* vanilla.

* 1 tsp baking powder.


* 1/2 cup sugar.

* 1/4 cup lemon juice.

* juice and shredded peel of one orange.

* 1/4 cup water.


* cover whole oranges with water and boil for 40-50 minutes or till very soft.

* in a food processor blend sugar and almonds till very fine.

* cut oranges to quarters and remove seeds then process till smooth ( whole orange peel and pulp).

* gradually add eggs while mixer running , add vanilla .
