Flourness Chocolate Orange Cake
Our delicious and really very easy to make low carb chocolate orange cake. This also is a fantastic cupcake recipe, just use small cupcake moulds.
This low carb moist chocolatey goodness is made with only a handful of ingredients.
Almond flour, a finer grain than almond meal, gives a smoother texture but either can be used.
Adapt your recipe to keto cake ratios by only using 1 orange, adding 1 extra teaspoon of olive oil and avoiding the honey, we also serve with thick cream too. Bliss!
- 8 eggs grass fed, organic
- 1.5 almond flour
- 2 oranges
- 75 ml light olive oil extra virgin cold pressed
- 200 g cacao powder or dark unsweetened chocolate powder
- 1/2 tsp bicarbonate powder
- 300 g mascarpone
- 8 strawberries
Simmer the oranges in water for 20 min, let them cool the blend to a pulp in a blender.
Thoroughly mix almond flour, bicarbonate powder, cacao powder and oil into the orange pulp.
Fold eggs one by one into the mixture, making sure that it doesn’t curdle.
Spoon into 2 equal sized round cake mounds. Or cupcake moulds if making smaller bite sized cakes.
Bake for 60 min at 160c for whole cakes or 35-40 minutes for cupcakes. Then turn out and allow to cool before topping.
Mix mascarpone and honey. Top each sponge then place one on top of the other for your cake sandwich.
Arrange the strawberries on top.
Optional: sprinkle with cacao nibs and baked almond flakes.
