Method

  • Preheat the oven to 180 C and prepare your cake tin : you could use a non stick silicon cake tin, or oil the bottom and sides of the cake tin, then dust with some ground almonds or some coconut flour.
  • In a mixing bowl, beat the eggs like you would do for an omelet.
  • Mix in the sugar / xylitol / honey, lemon zest, orange zest, cinnamon and olive oil.
  • Add the ground almonds and mix until well combined.
  • Pour in your prepared cake tin and cook for about 20 minutes or until the blade of a knife or a toothpick inserted in the centre of the cake comes out clean.
  • Allow to cool in the cake tin.
  • You may decorate the cake with a dusting of cinnamon or icing sugar, and serve with a helping of double cream.
