Paleo Orange Cake

This cake lasted about 1 afternoon in my house. It is so moist and delicious!

    I’m making this tomorrow – but I have lemons, not oranges. I’ll let you know how it turns out!

    only 1/2 cup flour? seems wattery

    • adriana February 10, 2013 at 9:04 am Reply

      1/2 cup of coconut flour is enough because the coconut flour absorbs a lot of water. Did you try making the recipe?

    I tried this recipe and tasted great. However, mine turned out to be more like a pão de ló… Is this how it’s supposed to be? Thank you!

      ajones, remind me what pão de ló is like please

    how can i substitute coconut flour with almond meal? coconut flour is tough to find in these parts.

    • adriana April 1, 2013 at 8:40 am Reply

      Stace, almond flour and coconut flour have completely different properties and cannot be used interchangeably. The recipes will not work if you substitute one for the other, but you could try doubling the amount of almond flour and keep the wet ingredients the same. Again, I would have to do a few tests to see how much of each ingredient to add when using almond flour. If you try this please let me know how it goes.

    For step #3, is this mixing it in electric mixer? Or just in a bowl by hand?

    • adriana November 21, 2013 at 9:54 am Reply

      mix in a bowl by hand

    It should be “grease” not “Greece” the country,

      Thanks

    Hi Adriana, I tried this recipe yesterday…it turned out fantastic! I added a bit more honey and a cap full of orange blossom water instead of zest (got frustrated with constantly grating my knuckles ouch). I’ve tried many many paleo cake recipes but I found the consistency of this one closest to real cake! Thank you for another great recipe :)

    Looks great! I want to try, but any idea if baking soda could be subbed for the baking powder? I don’t tolerate corn or potato starch. Thanks!

    • adriana April 6, 2014 at 11:46 am Reply

      Carey, baking soda does not contain corn or potato. Baking powder on the other hand does. With that said, you can substitute baking soda for baking powder and the conversion is as follow:
      1 tsp baking soda = 3 tsp baking powder.

    I may have said that the other way around…thanks for the info! Will definitely try with the soda!
