I really appreciate the omission of dairy from this recipe, even though I am not vegan :). I followed the recipe and added some extra ingredients to make this cake feel a little bit customized. I ADDED an extra orange and a kiwi to the juice, which yielded 1 3/4 cups orange-kiwi juice, also 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg, and i altered the sugar by using 1/2 cup white sugar and 1/4 cup brown sugar ( this was not intended, i ran out of white!!). The cake baked for 45 minutes, but that is probably due to the extra liquidity of my cake. I greased the pan with butter This cake tasted chewy but not mushy with a flavor that displayed the fruit in a tasty but not overpowering way.
This cake is good but I will use it as a jumping off point from now on as I felt it needed more flavour. Next time I will also both flour and grease the pan as the cake stuck with just greasing it. I will add orange zest along with some fresh nutmeg, as well as using brown sugar for half the sugar called for, and some vanilla. Also based on ratio, only 1 tsp of baking soda is needed.
My cake came out tasting like baking soda. Tried again with a teaspoon of baking powder and it was much better.
Delicious and simple! I used canola instead of vegetable oil, so if you're doing this, I'd recommend using a little less, because you can definitely taste it. I also added Trader Joe's pumpkin pie spice (about a teaspoon should do, you could also just add any spice blend of your choosing). Will certainly be coming back to this recipe. *Also, just make sure you get all the seeds out of the orange(s) you're using*
Great recipe! I substitute sugar with honey and white flour with spelt flour. The cake didn't rise as the picture however it's light, fluffy and tastes amazing!
Awesome recipe!! Tasted just like orange cookies!! Mmmmm.
Pretty simple recipe, which I love. I made a glaze for it as well, with powdered sugar, orange zest and orange juice, vegan butter, and walnuts. :)
Pretty tasty. I added vanilla extract,cinnamon and some cardamom.
