low boil and cook for 2 hrs (do not skip this part or the cake will be bitter) remove from water and let cool.

Roughly chop the oranges leaving skin on removing any pips then blend in a processor till smooth
In a bowl whisk the eggs and sugar till pale and creamy, gently fold in the orange puree, baking powder and almond meal till combined.
Fill prepared tin with mixture and bake for approximately 1 hour, check if cake becomes too brown cover with baking paper, it’s ready when a skewer inserted comes out clean

As cake cools slightly make the syrup by removing skin from orange with a peeler, no pith, slice finely and add to a saucepan on low heat with the juice of that orange and the sugar
Simmer gently till the sugar dissolves and thickens slightly
