Before you start on making this recipe I must warn you that this Orange Cake is Sugar-Free and only contains the natural sugar of the oranges and banana (fructose).
Since I love having leftover cakes for breakfast I decided to come up with a recipe that will be sugar-free so that I can start my day with the right energy, the one that goes up steadily until lunch time. Nothing makes me feel grumpier than feeling hungry less than 2 hours after having had breakfast!
The risk when baking a sugar-free cake is to end up with a cake which tastes like nothing at all! And that is not a risk I am willing to take I am afraid 😊 especially in the morning.
Fresh fruit juices or purees are the best way to add sweetness to cakes without using the actual sugar. I personally love to use apple puree or orange juice as I did in this recipe.
This Vegan Orange Cake is extra moist and dense which will keep you full and satisfied for the entire morning. It is sugar-free as well as gluten-free & dairy-free so that we can all enjoy a slice (or 2) of it!
For extra sweetness add some coconut whipped cream on top of it 😊. (PS. Use the ripest banana you can find as this will make your cake sweeter.)I hope you try and like this recipe, if so let me know!
