How To Make Orange Spice Cake
- Almond flour - Super-fine blanched almond flour. Make sure it's very fine, or your cake will have a gritty texture.
- Eggs - Free-range eggs at room temperature.
- Coconut oil - Can be substituted with avocado oil.
- Erythritol - This is the sweetener for the cake. I used powdered Erythritol. You can substitute it for other powdered sugar-free sweeteners like stevia, monk fruit, Allulose, etc.
- Baking powder
- Baking soda
- Xanthan gum
- Orange - You'll need a small amount of orange juice and zest for this keto orange cake.
- Orange extract - A high-quality pure orange extract.
- Vanilla extract - A high-quality pure vanilla extract.
- Spice blend - I used a simple blend of ground cardamom, cinnamon, and cloves.
- Preheat your oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit (165 degrees Celsius), and line and grease a 10-inch bundt pan.
- In a large mixing bowl, combine the almond flour with the Erythritol, cardamon, cinnamon, cloves, xanthan gum, baking powder, baking soda, and a pinch of salt.
- Add the eggs, coconut oil, water, orange juice, orange zest, orange extract, and vanilla extract in the same bowl. Whisk together until well combined into a batter.
- Pour the batter into the prepared bundt pan and bake in the oven for 40 to 50 minutes, until golden.
- Allow the cake to cool in the pan for a few minutes, then transfer it to a wire rack and let it cool to room temperature.
- Garnish the orange spice cake with powdered Erythritol and orange slices. Slice, serve, and enjoy! Merry Christmas!
