or neutral cooking oil
Orange, Zest and Juice
about 1/3 cup - 80ml of Orange Juice
or Semolina Flour
Almond Meal or Almond Flour
Orange, sliced for decoration
tbsp (30 gr)
Orange Semolina Cake
Preheat the oven on 180'C/350'F. Grease a Round Springform Pan (see note 1) or line it with baking paper.
In a large bowl, whisk the Eggs and Caster Sugar until frothy. Add the Canola Oil, Orange Juice, Orange Zest and Lemon Juice.
Whisk in the Semolina, Almond Meal, Baking Powder and Baking Soda. Pour the batter in the Springform Pan.
Thinly slice 1 Orange and place the slices over the cake batter.
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until the tip of a knife comes out clean.
Place the Orange Juice, Lemon Juice and Brown Sugar in a small pot on low to medium heat. Leave to reduce until thick, stirring occasionally.
You can either pour the Syrup over the Full Cake or on Individual Slices (see note 2)
I used a 8inch / 20cm Springform Pan for this cake.
If you decide to pour the syrup over the warm cake after taking it out of the oven, make sure to wait until the cake has fully cooled to remove it from the pan.
Note that most of the sweetness will be in the syrup. If making this cake without the syrup, I recommend adding a little bit more sugar in the cake batter to balance it.
