Orange and almond cake
This is a great recipe for a cake that tastes decadent but is actually packed with healthy ingredients and ridiculously easy to make. It’s also gluten and dairy free so great for those who struggle with wheat but still want to enjoy a tasty cake. For a sweetener we use coconut sugar and a little honey but you can substitute with maple syrup, stevia, or whatever you prefer.
