Sugarless, gluten-free orange cake

Post them up and every so often I'll snaffle them and put them on the blog, if that's okay? It'll save you the trouble of emailing them to me. (It will mean you lose out on our charming personal interaction but I sense you can live with that.)

Totally yum, amd very pretty, especially if you top it with blood oranges.

Wash and zest a large orange, then simmer it in water for 90 mins. Add 150g dried apricots (unsulphured) and boil for another 5 mins, then drain and purée.

In a big bowl, mix 100g chopped dried apricots, 2tbsp olive oil, 6 eggs, 2 tsp baking powder, the zest from the orange, and 250g ground almonds. Add the orange/apricot purée and mix well.

Bake for 50 mins at 170, in a greased and floured tin. While it's cooling, peel and slice two small sweet oranges (preferably blood oranges), and heat the slices gently with a little maple syrup before arranging them on top of the cake.

Not wanting to derail Treeb's thread so...

Does "In a big bowl, mix 100g chopped apricots" means fresh or dried apricots?

Wish I'd spied this before my birthday on Tuesday!!

Dried. Sorry, should have been clearer!
