This gluten-free orange cake is light but satisfying and full of flavour.
It calls for a whole orange (peels and all), ensuring that all the goodness of the fruit is not lost. Most importantly, fibre, which is food for our good gut microbes, stabilises blood sugar levels and keeps us filling fuller for longer. Sweetened naturally by the orange and a sprinkle of stevia, you really can have your cake and eat it too (maybe even for breakfast)!
Once cool, use a brush to coat the cake in orange marmalade or apricot jam and decorate with a dehydrated orange slice or fresh peels.
