Flourless Orange Almond Cake/Torte ~ 没有面粉橙子杏仁蛋糕



A gluten free cake using only almond meal instead of flour.  Texture is moist, soft, dense but not heavy.  You can serve this with a dollop of mascarpone cheese, fresh berries or a light dusting of icing sugar.  Be patient, let the cake sit overnight and it tastes much better the next day.   A moreish treat and a keeper recipe for sure!
