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!
To make Orange Olive Oil Cake, you will need the following ingredients:

Drizzle syrup over cake
No tips or long comment just wanted to say i enjoyed this simple recipe.
I used some greek yogurt instead of plain white and replaced the granulated white sugar with brown, very nice recipe.
One of my personal favorites when it comes to vegetarian desserts, can't get enough of it!
Added some walnuts to the inside of this yummy!
The lemon isnt really neccessary if you dont like a slight sour or tangy taste dont add it.
Lovely dessert i baked it for my nieces birthday.
Baked to perfection! will be making this again thx so much.
Delicious flavoured cake works wonders when trying to satisfy a family of non-sweet tooths and sweet tooths cause they can add their own things to the side if its not sweet enough.
Whipped cream on the top and thank me later (-;
I used honey instead of the rosemary drizzle, was wonderful.
Enjoying the cake as I type this out the texture is slightly spongey but sooo good.
My kids adore this cake they actually helped me make it :)
This recipe is perfection if you use the exact measurments as listed the cake will turn out perfect and kinda healthy too since its not a bunch of chocolate in it.
5 star appearance and 5 star taste couldnt ask for anything more good than this.
So taste wise the cake was okay.. next time around i will definetly be adding more sugar though and maybe something else other than the rosemary cause it didnt taste that good.
Doesn't take too long compared to a few other recipes i wont name to be nice. But it does need a lot more toppings or something inside like chocolate chips or berries to make it sweeter or else its just a plain cake with a very slight taste of orange in it.
The kuchen dessert was my favorite up until this cake came along!!!
First time making this hopefully all goes well i suck at baking lol.
I would recommend putting a little less oil or it makes the cake really oily and not too tasty.
Delicious cake, not too sweet nor too bitter really enjoyed making this too.
Amazing recipe! Thanks!
