cake with oranges in syrup

Recipe taken from Salt and Pepper Collection of November 2012

Serves 8-10 people
120 g almond flour
150 g of flour
3 untreatened oranges 
4 organic eggs
400 g of sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder for cakes
150 g of butter

How to do it:
Put 230 g of sugar in a large thick-bottomed saucepan, with 1.25 liters of water. Mix, melt the sugar, bring to a boil and boil for 10 minutes. Thinly slice the oranges and dip them in the syrup, cook for 15 minutes on low heat and let cool in the cooking liquid. Melt the butter on low heat. Sift the flour then mix it with almond flour and baking powder. Heat the eggs in a saucepan with the sugar, stirring with a whisk for 2-3 minutes (max 45 °). Then mount them until they are foamy and clear. Stir in the butter and flour mix. Drain the orange slices, keeping the syrup, and place them on the bottom and sides of a cake pan with high sides and well greased. Pour in the mixture being careful not to drop the slices, and put into a preheated oven at 180 degrees for 50 minutes (after about 30 minutes my cake was too golden and I put aluminum foil until the end of cooking, do the toothpick test). Turn out knocking over the cake on a platter, then reduce over high heat syrup of orange and use it to brush the cake. Let cool before serving.
