Blueberry, almond and orange cake

Blueberry, almond and orange cake


Serves 8-12


  • 4 eggs
  • 1 1/4 cups (280g) caster sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups almond meal
  • 1 cup (150g) plain flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup (125ml) fresh orange juice
  • 1 tbsp orange zest, finely grated
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1/3 cup flaked almonds


Preheat oven to 190°C (170°C fan-forced). Grease and line a 24cm springform cake tin.

Whisk eggs and sugar for several minutes until frothy and until it has more than doubled in volume. Stir through almond meal, flour, baking powder, orange juice and zest. Pour into prepared cake tin.

Scatter blueberries over the batter and top with flaked almonds.

Bake for 50-55 minutes until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean.


  • You’ll need about two oranges to yield this much juice and zest.
  • Frozen blueberries are fine to use in this recipe.
