150 g flour
1 tsp baking powder
100 ml orange juice
Grated peel of one organic orange

Icing sugar for sprinkling
Finely grate 200 g of the well-washed and unpeeled pumpkin directly into a bowl with a grater and set aside.
Separate three eggs and beat the egg yolks with the sugar in a large bowl until foamy. Save the egg whites for later.
Sift in 100 g flour and 1 tsp baking powder. Add 200 g ground almonds.
Grate the zest of the orange over the top. Add the juice of the squeezed orange or 100 ml orange juice.
Mix everything with a mixer and preheat the oven to 180 degrees, second shelf from the bottom.
Beat the egg whites with a pinch of salt until stiff and gently fold into the mixture.
Pour the batter into a cake tin greased with oil and press down lightly.
Bake the cake for 50 minutes, then remove from the oven, leave to cool for 10 minutes before turning out.
Once the cake has cooled completely, depending on your taste, just sprinkle with a little icing sugar or cover with orange juice – sugar icing. Or enjoy it plain.
