Simple Orange Cake

Hi friends! I’m excited to share this delicious and Simple Orange Cake recipe with you today. My previous posts on desserts have been getting a lot of engagement and I wanted to follow up on that momentum with another tasty treat.

This vegan orange cake is made with just 10 simple ingredients and is perfect for satisfying your sweet tooth. It’s made with fresh oranges and has a moist, fluffy texture that’s hard to resist.

To make this cake, simply mix together the dry ingredients in one bowl and the wet ingredients in another. Then, combine the two and mix until smooth. Transfer the batter to a parchment-lined baking pan and bake in a preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

I also made an incredibly delicious frosting to go with the cake. For this, I used full-fat coconut cream and added a bit of orange zest to 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.
