Honey Cake with Orange Topping
Almonds, margarine and canola oil provide rich unsaturated fatty acids; wholemeal flour contains important B vitamins, fiber, and minerals.
If you want the cake to taste more orange, simply replace the apple juice with the same amount of freshly squeezed orange juice.

Rinse apple, wipe dry, quarter, core and finely grate.
Separate the eggs. Place the yolks with honey in a bowl and beat until creamy with a hand mixer.
Gradually beat in canola oil, then salt and cinnamon.
Mix whole-meal flour with baking powder and sift into the egg yolk mixture in batches, alternating with the apple juice.
Beat egg whites until stiff with a hand mixer in another bowl and fold into the batter.
Grease a loaf pan (about 29 x 10.5 cm) (approximately 10 x 14 inches) with 1 tablespoon margarine.
Pour in the batter, smooth the surface with a rubber spatula and bake on the middle rack of a preheated oven at approximately 350°F for 50-60 minutes.
Meanwhile, rinse the orange in hot water, wipe dry and finely grate the zest.
Cut orange in half and squeeze. Mix the juice in a small bowl with the raisins and leave to soak.
Peel carrot and cut into pieces. Finely chop carrot and almonds in a mini processor.

Mix grated orange zest and 2-3 tablespoons of orange juice into the carrot mixture. Place in a small jar, screw on lid and refrigeratge until ready to serve.
Take the honey cake from the oven and let cool completely. Cut 1 slice per serving and sprinkle with 1 tablespoon of orange topping. Keep remaining cake in a storage tin.
