California Almond and Orange Dessert
From Dorothy McNett's recipes at www.dorothymcnett.com. The topping is made with cashews, but almonds could be used although they are not quite as creamy as the cashews.
1 1/2 cups raw almonds
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Oil a springform pan or tart pan with olive oil and set aside. Grind almonds in a food processor or blender until very fine, like flour. Add the zest, juice, honey and salt, and then add the eggs to process thoroughly. Pour into the prepared pan and bake 20-25 minutes, or until the cake no longer jiggles and a toothpick comes out clean when inserted into the middle of the torte. Remove to a cooling rack and allow to cool completely. Remove the outside of the pan.
