Gluten Free Orange Olive Oil Cake

This Orange Olive Oil Cake is a fantastic recipe to make when you are entertaining friends who are gluten intolerant. This cake has ground almonds and polenta instead of flour which not only makes it gluten free, but the nutty flavors and slight crunch from the polenta really elevates this olive oil orange cake to a new level.

Start making this orange olive oil cake recipe by preparing an orange puree. Make a gluten free cake batter using polenta and ground almonds. Add olive oil and orange puree and mix until you have a smooth batter. Bake the cake in the oven. As the cake cools, make an orange syrup to drizzle over the top. I love to serve this cake with a dollop of crème fraîche on top. Delish!
