Gluten Free Orange Cake
Serves: 6 to 8
Easy to make, this simply delicious gluten- and dairy-free orange cake will win hearts at any holiday dinner or as a special breakfast treat. A slice of this cake is particularly satisfying with a glass of organic whole milk.
  • 1 lb organic oranges (about 2 oranges)
  • 6 eggs
  • ¼ cup Honey MELT®, softened
  • 1¼ cup sugar
  • 2⅓ cups almond meal
  • 1 generous teaspoon baking powder
  1. Place the oranges in a pot of cold water, cover, and bring to boil. Cook for 2 hours or until the oranges are soft.
  2. Drain, and allow the oranges to cool completely.
  3. When cool, cut the oranges in half and remove any seeds. Cut the oranges into quarters and finely chop/ blend the whole orange – peel, pith, fruit and all – in a food processor.
  4. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  5. Generously grease a 9-inch springform pan or line with parchment paper.
  6. Beat the eggs with a hand blender.
  7. Stir in by hand the sugar, Honey MELT, almond meal, and baking powder until thoroughly mixed together.
  8. Add the chopped/ processed oranges and mix well by hand.
  9. Pour the cake mixture into the springform pan and bake for 1 hour or until a tooth pick comes out clean. Cover the cake with foil around 40 minutes into baking to prevent the top from burning.
