Hello and welcome to Health Alignment. Thank you so much for visiting my site today. I love sharing these recipes with you all and I hope you enjoy this one as much as I did. With the abundance of oranges around this time of year I thought it only seemed right to make something sweet using these cost effective little gems.
I made this cake for friends the other day and they could not believe it was vegan and they thoroughly enjoyed it.
This cake is moist but really light and fluffy at the same time with a perfect orange flavour coming through. This heavenly cake is perfect for tea time any time and you can swop the ingredients around to make it as healthy as you like. So lets get started.
You are going to need:
A cake tin or two
Measuring cups and spoons
Time: 1 Hour
2 Cups of all purpose flour (I used stoneground cake flour)
1 Cup of castor sugar or sugar of your choice such as coconut or xylitol
1 Teaspoon of baking powder
1 Teaspoon baking soda
Pinch of salt
1/3 Cup oil of your choice
1 Teaspoon of apple cider vinegar
500ml of orange juice
2 tablespoons of your favourite jam (I used apricot)
Preheat the oven to 180°C and greece your cake tins.
Sieve all your dry ingredients into your mixing bowl and mix until well combined.
Add the wet ingredients to the mixing bowl and mix well until everything is smooth.
Pour the mixture into the cake tin or tins and bake for 35 -40 minutes. Pierce with a knife to test if the cakes are ready, if the knife comes out clean then remove the cakes from the oven and allow to cool before removing from the cake tins.
Evenly spread the 2 tablespoons of jam on top of the first layer of the cake. Place the second layer on top and Sprinkle with some icing sugar.
