We're moving into the cold season here in Australia!
Reaping the benefits of food gardening in winter is incredibly rewarding! Many low FODMAP fruits, vegetables and herbs abound in the colder months like citrus, persimmons, carrots, celeriac, fennel, kale and parsley.
In my garden I’ve got an orange tree dripping with ripe fruit so here is a simple recipe for a delicious recipe for orange and macadamia cake or mini cakes. The cake is very moist and keeps well but you will need a food processor to make it.
Flourless Orange and Macadamia Cake
Recipe makes 1 large cake (26cm or 10”) or ~12 mini muffin cakes (total weight 1050g or 2lb 5 oz)
·Store your macadamias in the freezer as it stops the nuts going rancid.
·When grinding the macadamias in a food processor be careful not to overgrind them as they will turn into a paste. You need to grind them to the consistency of slightly course flour.
·This cake freezes very well in an airtight bag or container.
·Remove the stalk end from the top of the oranges before boiling
