  • 150 g plain flour
  • 75 g almond flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cardamom powder
  • 170 g white sugar You can use 200g
  • 75 g unsalted butter melted
  • 85 g olive oil
  • 4 nos eggs Approximately 62 g each with shell
  • 2 tbsp orange juice
  • 1 tsp orange zest
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract I also used orange extract


Thermomix method:

  • Preheat the oven to 180C/375F. Grease a 24CM pan with butter. Melt the butter, add oil and orange juice to it. Whisk it well.
  • Mix all the dry ingredients, orange zest and sieve them twice to get rid of all the lumps.
  • Tip in the eggs and sugar in the Thermomix bowl, insert the butterfly whisk. Whisk them on 3.5 speed for 3 minutes. Add in the orange extract (if you are adding) and vanilla extract. Increase the speed to 4 and mix it for another 1 minute till it is light.
  • Remove the butterfly whisk and tip in the dry ingredients. Mix it on speed 5 for 32 seconds. Tip the batter in a bowl, add in the oil, butter and juice mixture.
  • Fold it lightly, making sure you don't overmix the batter.
  • Pour it in the greased pan and bake it in the preheated oven for 35-40 minutes or till the toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean.
  • Leave the cake in the tin for 5 minutes and then transfer it to the wire cooling rack.
  • Sprinkle powdered sugar and chopped almonds. Serve it with tea.

For Non-Thermomix method:

  • Repeat the first 2 steps. Using a wire whisk or stand mixture, beat the eggs and sugar until light and fluffy. Add in the vanilla and orange extract, continue to beat it for 5 seconds.
  • Use a paddle hook or a spatula fold in the flour in 3 batches. And repeat the rest of the process as mentioned above.
