Preheat the oven to 180 deg c conventional oven. Grease and line 1 x 2lb loaf tin with baking parchment.
Beat together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
Gradually add the eggs, one at a time, adding a little flour to help prevent curdling. Mix until well combined.
Fold in the remaining flour, ground almonds, Orange Zest and orange juice. Mix until well combined.
Bake in the oven for 45 – 50mins or until baked, testing the centre of the cake with a skewer until it comes out clean.
Leave in the tin for 10 mins to cool a little, before turning out onto a wire rack to cool completely.
Make the Orange Icing Topping
Sieve the icing sugar into a bowl, then gradually add the orange juice until you reach a thick spreadable consistency.
Spread the orange icing over the cooled cake, top with slices of orange.
Always make sure your oven comes up to temperature. Invest in an oven thermometer if you can.
Line the tin with baking parchment makes it easier to lift the cake out of the tin.
Will keep for a few days if wrapped well and in an airtight container.
You can bake this cake in an 8 inch round cake tin, but the baking times may differ slightly. And you may need to bake it a little longer.
