Paleo Orange Cake

A Classic Family Orange Cake is Born Again

My grandmother used to make me a paleo orange cake. Do you remember your favourite cake as a kid? This is mine. I don’t have a copy of the original recipe but I have created my version that brings back the memory my grandmother gave to me. It has that slight bitter sweet taste and an amazing moist texture.

I raided my neighbours orange tree this week. It was loaded with oranges that are starting to carpet the ground at the base of the tree. I ate a lot and I made juice but right now as I am waiting for this cake to come out of the oven. As that smell fills my house, I can’t wait to eat it, this cake is going to be fantastic with raw cashew cream.

This New Cake Flour Brings back a Family Classic

When it comes to fruit cakes, this paleo orange cake is up there with the best. When I was recreating this recipe I tried almond meal but thought it needed somethings more. I came up with my All Purpose Paleo Flour Blend of nuts, seeds, coconut flour with tapioca and a touch of psyllium. Now, with this paleo flour I created a delicious and moist cake.

I make a lot of cakes. I really love baking and I love how you create something so spectacular from simple ingredients. My Dad always encouraged us as a family to eat healthy. When I was young I worked out that Mum’s healthy cakes, biscuits and slices just had more flavour than other snacks.

Then as I grew up I realised how lucky I was to have a passion for baking really health and tasty cakes and snacks. I also realised that what is normal for me is not what most other people grew up with. I hope you enjoy the recipes I love to create. If you do please share this recipe and help spread more healthy recipes into the wider world. I love to be and do different. I hope we can inspire a few others out there to do thinks a bit different too.
