(I snipped this from a Facebook group I'm on, and haven't had the chance to try it yet.)

Put the following in a small sauce pan:
1/4 cup turmeric powder (preferably organic)
1 Tbsp Cinnamon
1 tsp Ginger
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp allspice
1/2 tsp cardamom
1/2 tsp cloves
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper

Add 1/2 cup water and bring to a gentle boil. Reduce heat and simmer for about 5-7 minutes. It will thicken and become like a paste. Add 4 tbsp of coconut oil and mix well.

Put it in a glass jar to refrigerate.

When you want some golden milk or turmeric tea, take 1-2 heaping tsp and add to a mug of hot water, or hot milk of choice (I use cashew milk). I do usually add 1-2 tsp of raw local honey, it's a fairly bitter brew without it.

Original is here. We make this for Epiphany.

2 large oranges, left whole
6 large eggs
9 ounces/ 250 grams finely ground blanched almonds
9 ounces/ 250 grams granulated sugar
1 teaspoon double-action baking powder

Place the oranges in a saucepan and barely cover them with water. Bring to a boil, lower the water to a simmer and leave on low heat, covered, for 1 hour. When done, remove the oranges from the pan and leave to cool.

Preheat the oven to 375F/ 190C. Butter and flour a 10-inch (25 cm) leak-proof springform tin. Roughly chop the oranges, discarding any pips, then thoroughly blend the orange pieces with the eggs in a food processor or blender.

In a large bowl, mix the ground almonds, sugar and baking powder, then whisk in the egg-orange mixture. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 45 minutes to an hour. The cake is done when it turns a deep golden brown, has come away slightly from the sides of the tin and the top springs back when touched. If the cake is still very wet, put it back in the oven to cool a little longer.

Allow the cake to cool completely in the tin before turning it out gently on the serving plate. It can be stored in the refrigerator, tightly wrapped.
