Citrus and Almond Loaf Cake

Serves: 8-10

You will need

1 orange
30ml Groovy Food omega cool oil
110g unsalted butter, softened
100g Groovy Food agave nectar light and mild
2 free-range organic eggs, beaten

For the drizzle:
Juice of 1 lemon
2 tablespoons Groovy Food agave nectar light and mild



Directions

1. Take the top and bottom from the orange then cut into smaller pieces. Blitz up in a mini blender until you still have a little texture then add in the oil and blend until you have a purée. Set aside.

2. Cream the butter until light and fluffy then add the agave and eggs before folding in the sifted flour and almonds. Mix until fully combined, then fold through the purée.

3. Pour the mix into a greased 2lb baking tin and bake in a pre-heated oven set to 180°C/Gas Mark 4 for 40-45 minutes.

4. Meanwhile mix lemon juice and agave and pour over the cake as soon as it comes out of the oven. Leave to cool before slicing and serve with a spoonful of ice cream if desired.
