Spiced Orange and Almond Cake (Gluten Free)

This recipe really benefits from using the sous vide function on your oven to cook the oranges. Traditionally for this sort of recipe we would boil the oranges for an hour or so but in doing so we lose a lot of the flavour of the oranges into the boiling water. We also can not add the spiced flavour to the oranges by doing this.
