Dairy Free Orange Cake


I whipped up this recipe the other day when I was making a pinata. It is absolutely delicious and I recommend eating it with whipped cream or alternatively greek honeyed yogurt (even though both are dairy) and strawberries. I rate this recipe at 5 stars as I had absolutely no issues with it.  Enjoy my delicious cake recipe that provides you with your vitamin C, without the heaviness of dairy and fat.


1 cup of Self Raising Flour

1 cup of Almond Meal

1 cup of White Sugar

1 Egg (not necessary but good for binding)

1 cup of Fresh Orange Juice

The Rind of all oranges used for juice


  1. Preheat fan force oven to 180 degrees celsius. Use a 21 by 21 cm cake tin with a height of 5cm and cut a piece of baking paper that covers the bottom and sides of the inside of the cake tin. Put aside.
  2. Grate the orange rind (which is only the orange outer skin, not the inner white) and put aside. Use a hand grater and grate onto a plate. Squeeze orange juice into a cup and put aside.
  3. Measure the flour, sugar and almond meal and place into a large mixing bowl. Then add egg, orange juice and rind. Stir using a wooden spoon until the ingredients are combined and their are no more lumps of flour.
  4. Pour mixture into cake tin and then place in the oven for 20 mins. If it isn’t cooked at 20 mins, place in oven again for another 5 mins. Note: Cake doesn’t rise a lot and is very moist. Be careful not to overcook and lose the moistness.
  5. Remove from oven and leave to cool.
