It's a family tradition to have tea with a citrus cake. In the pursuit of being able to enjoy this delicious treat and watch my diet and sugar intake, after thorough research, I came up with this recipe and I love it. It is very moist and it will make your house smell delicious, not to mention its charming orange flavor. I made it with olive oil and I promise it does not taste like it. I hope you enjoy it!

  • Combine flour and baking powder in another bowl; stir into the egg mixture until just blended. Pour into the prepared pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a knife inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean, 40 to 45 minutes.

You may replace olive oil for vegetable oil, sugar for monk fruit sweetener, and oat flour for any flour of your choice (same quantities for everything).

Very fragrant and tasty. Used a 9x13 pan as called for but looked more like a cookie bar instead of a cake. Read More
