Orange Almond Cake (Vegan, Gluten-Free) in baking pan

So today my family and I went for a walk and while putting on my shoes in my garage I saw a basket full of about 2 dozen fresh Florida juicy oranges that my hubby had neatly stocked.

The bright idea came to me to use them up before they would spoil. You see last week the weather was in the 60's during daytime but today it was in the 80's so I knew if this kind of weather last the oranges will spoil. Although we have 2 refrigerators they were fully packed so my only choice was to juice them.

I decided to use some of the juice to make this delicious dairy-free Orange Cake, I added almond flour and almond flavoring to the frosting so calling it Almond Orange Cake was very fitting.

Flourless Orange Almond Cake

Nine days ago I made my Blueberry Pineapple Bread and last in February I shared my No-Bake Strawberry Ice Cream Tart and I really thought that I wouldn't make any dessert recipe anytime soon but here I am with this moist and delicious flourless orange almond cake.

This cake turned out to be moist and fluffy and it is very easy to prepare. I love to use Bob's Red Mills Almond Flour and this time I used Pillsbury Gluten-Free Flour.
