Simple Orange Cake

Hello friends! Our previous posts on desserts have been getting some huge engagements and we wanted to follow up on that momentum with another one. 

Presenting simple, easy, 10-ingredient vegan orange cake. Made with the freshest of oranges, this is an amazing bake for your sweet tooth. 

The procedure is straightforward. Mix dry ingredients with wet ingredients until smooth, transfer to parchment-lined baking pan, and bake.

I also made this incredibly delicious frosting to go with the cake. For this, I used (full fat) coconut cream. A bit of orange zest helped amp up the flavor even more.

Let’s go! 😊

    I have a HUGE family so I made a double-layered orange cake using this recipe (basically doubled everything lol). Came out perfect.
