Claudia Roden's Orange Almond cake

For some bizarre reason this recipe has been left out of my copy of Roden's New Book of Middle Eastern Food. In my edition the page that it is supposed to be on is blank (I must call the publisher!). Anyway, if someone can please post a free- form rendition (I know we can't post it verbatim--copyright infringment, etc) of this classic I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you.

      IMO, if you use really good oranges e.g., Australian or valencia, CR's recipe is better than NL's. Also, I prefer the almonds thoroughly/finely ground.

    2. also joyce goldstein has a nice on in "Back to Square One"
