Zesty Orange and Lime Layers to Make the Perfect Sweet Treat!
To celebrate Bec's 33rd birthday we are sharing one of her favourites with you. She has always been a fan of citrus – so this is a double whammy! The gorgeous lime and orange layers combine to create visually stunning and completely delicious Thermomix cake.
This gluten free / dairy free cake was created for The Kitchen Garden Issue of the magazine which has a whole section of “Citrus Faves” in it (not all sweets though! The Citrus Grilled Chicken is a fabulous example of how you can use citrus to create a great mid-week dinner!)

This recipe makes brilliant use of your Thermomix. It cooks the fruit in the internal steaming basket, it grinds the almonds, whips the eggs and blends it all together. What a wonder that machine is!
Bec will be subbing out the sugar for xylitol for a lower carb option – you are welcome to do this too if that suits your dietary style.
