Orange Almond Flour Mini Bundt Cake

It was one of those weeks where I was craving an orange bundt cake so I made an orange bundt cake! Topped it with an orange powdered sugar glaze that tastes heavenly. Scratch your afternoon plans and make this simple, yet so flavorful and orange-zesty, cake.

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Generously grease a mini bundt cake pan with coconut oil or nonstick spray.
  • Combine almond flour, salt and baking soda in a bowl.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, syrup, orange zest, and orange juice. Add flour mixture, then stir in chia seeds.
  • Pour into prepped pan. Bake for 35-40 minutes.
  • Allow the cake to cool for about an hour before removing from the pan. Flip onto plate and prepare glaze.

Orange Glaze:

  • 1/3 cup monk fruit powder sugar
  • 1/2 tsp orange juice
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2-4 tbsp milk of choice (may need more or less depending on consistency of the glaze. You want it to be a little runny but still thick!)

On a slightly different note: oranges semi helped my nausea during my first trimester. It didn’t make it go away but I totally noticed that eating an orange helped ease the all day sea-sick feeling. Oranges sounded the least appetizing at the time but it worked for me. What helped you, if anything, get through any nauseous feeling during pregnancy?

Meet me on the patio for some peachy, raspberry, probiotic filled cake.

If you’re new around here then you must know that my one and only resolution this year was to bake more often. I’ve always loved being in the kitchen but following a baking recipe felt like listening to a long lecture in school. Snooze, snore, get me outta there! I tried baking so many times and decided to just stick to things that didn’t require baking soda/powder (because I honestly couldn’t tell you the difference). But this was my year to change that! Six months into 2019 and I’m feeling pretty good about #whatrobinbakes.

In a lot of my baked goods you’ll see Lifeway Kefir products. Their kefir is a great substitute for milk and their kefir cups are perfect as a substitute for greek yogurt. In this peachy cake above I used Lifeway Organic Natural Kefir Cup and I’m so glad I did! Click the link in my bio or swipe up in my stories for the recipe. Your patio table needs this cute cake sitting on top!

Ingredients:

  • 4 tablespoons salted butter
  • 4 tablespoons Lifeway Organic Natural Kefir Cup
  • 3/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 2 whole eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 peache, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup rasberries
  • Mixed seeds (chia seeds, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds) *optional

Directions:

  • Preheat the oven to 350 F degrees. Line an 8-inch circular cake pan, or square pan, with parchment paper.
  • Beat the kefir cup, butter, and coconut sugar together until combined. Add the eggs and vanilla, beat until eggs are well mixed.
  • Add the flour, baking powder, and baking soda. Mix until combined, don’t over mix! Transfer batter to the prepared pan and spread evenly.
  • Arrange the peach slices how you’d like on top of the batter. Arrange the raspberries over the top of the cake and sprinkle with seed mixture.
  • Bake for 20-30 minutes depending on your oven. Springy to touch and golden brown around the edges.
  • Let cool slight before serving!

How do you feel about baking? Have any tips that I should know about? Have you tried baking with Lifeway Kefir? Cheers!
