Orange Cous Cous Cake

It seems we are into all things orange


1 orange
1 tblspn honey
50g (2oz) self raising flour
50g castor sugar
25g cous cous
1 egg
3 tblspn olive oil
1 tspn baking powder

Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F/Gas Mark 4/fan oven 160°C. Butter a 20cm (8in) non-stick sandwich tin. Grate the rind from the orange and set aside, then peel removing all of white pith. Cut the peeled orange into thin slices and use to line the base of the greased sandwich tin. Drizzle the honey on top.
Place the flour, sugar and Cous Cous into a food processor and blend until fine. Add the egg, olive oil, baking powder and reserved orange rind and blend again until well combined.
Spoon the cake mixture over the oranges and bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes until well risen and golden brown.
Remove the cake from the oven and leave to rest in the tin for a few minutes, then loosen the sides with a palette knife and turn out on to a flat plate.
