Milk & Honey Cake with Oranges

Whew – what a busy Saturday!!! Today, I had the privilege of doing a cooking demonstration at the Webb City Farmer’s Market. Don’t worry – I’ll post more on that later! We have also been preparing for our big move! Contracts have been signed, inspections will come soon I’m sure and in less than 40 days, we will hopefully be in a new (to us) home! Everything happens at once it seems, but we are so blessed! After a busy day, I want a nice dessert but frankly I did not want to spend a lot of time on it. This cake is so simple and different, yet tasty! It consists of a simple batter with a few oranges thrown in. I didn’t want to make a lot so I decided to throw it in a pie plate. It turned out thin, crisp and flavorful. This makes about 6 servings.

1 1/2 cup GF flour blend
1/4 cup coconut flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup pineapple or orange juice
1/2 cup almond milk
3 mandarin oranges, peeled and cut into small chunks
1/2 cup coconut flakes
Glaze
1/4 cup canned coconut milk
1 Tbsp honey
1/4 tsp cinnamon

  • In a large bowl, combine flours, baking soda, baking powder, salt and cinnamon.
  • Add in juice, honey and milk and mix over low speed for about 30 seconds. If necessary, add in a little bit of milk or flour to get the right consistency. You want a thick, yet pourable batter (similar to regular cake).
  • Fold in coconut and oranges gently until combined.
  • Pour into a greased pie plate or small cake pan and bake at 350F for about 20 minutes or until edges start to brown.
  • While cake is baking, mix together glaze ingredients. Pour over warm cake and serve.
