Preheat oven to 180C/160C fan-forced. Grease a 6cm-deep, 22cm (base) round pan. Line base and side with baking paper. Make Caramelized Orange. Peel oranges, removing pith. Cut into 1cm-thick rounds. Heat a large frying pan over high heat. Sprinkle with sugar. Cook, without stirring, for 10 to 12 minutes or until sugar melts and turns golden in colour. Add butter. Whisk to combine. Add orange slices. Cook for 30 seconds, turning to coat. Using tongs, line base of prepared pan with orange slices. Pour over any remaining caramel from pan. Set aside.


Using an electric mixer, beat butter and sugar in a large bowl. Beat in eggs until combined. Add almond meal and rind, juice. Beat until combined. Add flour. Beat until just combined. Spoon over oranges, spreading to level. Bake for 45 minutes. Cover with foil and bake for a further 25 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool in pan for 15 minutes.


Turn cake onto a serving plate. Drizzle with a little orange or maple syrup. Serve with whipped cream and remaining syrup.
