Eggfree Orange Cake
This homemade Eggfree Orange Cake is filled with so much orange flavor thanks to the orange zest and fresh orange juice. Soft and moist with a tender crumb from almond meal.
Enjoy this cake for breakfast, dessert, or as a mid-day snack! Leave it plain or serve it with a drizzle of orange syrup, dust with icing sugar or dress it up with whipped cream or cream cheese.
We need thick curd but not hung curd. You can also use store bought curd.
