Orange and Almond Syrup Cake

I've had several requests for this recipe after I used this cake in my Cup of Tea with Me Post. So here it is, and also in it's true uncropped image. Unlike the one I had to use previously. A lesson to never turn your back, however momentarily, on a delicious looking cake when you have a peckish husband roaming around the house.

Orange and Almond Syrup Cake

2 whole oranges
250g almond meal
250g caster sugar
3 eggs
1 tspn baking powder

60gm freshly squeezed orange juice
80gm caster sugar
80gm citrus marmalade

Place oranges into saucepan and cover with water. Bring to boil and simmer very gently, with lid closed for 45 minutes. Remove and discard water. Allow to cool.
Preheat oven to 180C. Grease and line a 20cm cake tin.
Once oranges have cooled, remove top and bottom of oranges, and cut into pieces.
Place all cake ingredients into food processor and process until mixture resembles a smooth batter.
Pour into tin and bake 40-45 minutes.

Once cake is out of the oven you can prepare the syrup. Place orange juice, sugar and marmalade into a small saucepan and over low heat continually stir the syrup until all of the sugar is dissolved. Using a skewer, pierce cake multiple times before pouring over syrup and allow it to absorb before serving.
