Holiday Spiced Orange Loaf Cake
1 1/2 cup Bob’s Red Mill Almond Flour
1/2 cup Bob’s Red Mill Coconut Flour
4 pasture raised eggs
1/2 cup melted coconut oil
1/2 cup maple syrup
1/2 cup freshly squeezed orange juice (or juice of half of a large naval orange)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground cardamom
1/4 tsp all spice
2-3 thin slices of orange for topping cake
1 tbsp coconut sugar for topping cake
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Line a 8x4 inch loaf pan with parchment paper or grease the pan.
Place almond flour, coconut flour, baking soda, spices, salt in a mixing bowl. Mix well until evenly combined.
Meanwhile, melt 1/2 cup of coconut oil. Combine in a separate bowl with maple syrup, freshly squeezed orange juice, vanilla extract, and eggs. Beat eggs and mix until fully combined with rest of wet ingredients.
Stir dry ingredients into wet ingredients until perfectly smooth and creamy.
Pour batter into prepared loaf pan. Top batter with 2-3 thin slices of oranges (peel on). Cover oranges in coconut sugar. This will remove bitterness from orange peels and caramelize in oven.
Bake in oven for 50-60 minutes at 350 degees F or until fully cooked.
Remove from oven and let cool.
Slice and serve. Enjoy!
