Orange, Almond, and Olive Oil Cake

2 small oranges
1 lemon
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
4 eggs (room temperature)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1-1/2 cups sugar
6 ounces toasted almonds, finely chopped
2/3 cup olive oil
Confectioners' sugar

Place whole oranges and lemons in a pan and cover with water.
Simmer them over medium heat for 30 minutes, then remove from heat,
drain, and cool. Cut the lemon in half and discard the pulp and
seeds. Cut the oranges in half and discard the seeds (not the pulp).
Place the lemon rind and the orange halves in a food processor
fitted with a metal blade. Chop finely.

Sift the flour and the baking powder together into a bowl and set
aside. Preheat oven to 350F.

Add the chopped fruit and almonds, and the olive oil. Beat slowly
until just incorporated. Do not over-mix!

Pour the batter into a 10-inch springform pan. Bake in preheated

cake is set. Allow to cool on a rack, then remove from springform
pan. Place on a serving dish and dust the top with confectioner's
