For the cake:

175g softened butter
175g caster sugar
225g self-raising flour
50g ground almonds
4 large free range eggs

A few drops of vanilla essence


1. For the candied peel, cut the orange into eight wedges, then cut out the flesh, leaving a 5mm thickness of peel and pith. Cut each wedge into four strips. Pour 300ml water into a small pan, add the granulated sugar and heat, stirring until the sugar has dissolved. Add the orange zest and simmer uncovered for 30-45 minutes, until the lemon peel is soft and translucent. Drain in a sieve and leave to cool. Spread the peel out on a baking sheet lined with parchment and sprinkle with caster sugar. Place in the oven on the lowest setting (approximately 110C/fan 90C/gas ¼) for one hour until dry.
