FLOURLESS ORANGE CAKE

If you follow me on Instagram, you might remember me talking about my worst kitchen disaster last month- a flour less orange cake that was extremely bitter. But I redeemed myself this week with this delicious orange cake that is flavorful and dense. The main base of this cake is almond flour. I made my own almond flour using organic almonds from 24 Mantra organic. Simply blanch 3 cups of organic almonds and then process them into a fine flour. Make sure you don't process for too long otherwise you will end up with almond butter! I top the cake with meringue frosting but it is equally good as it is. You can find the recipe of meringue frosting in this blog post- 

This is My 5th recipe in collaboration with 24 Mantra Organic, creating recipes for an organic life through the Organic Mantras Initiative. Some amazing recipes and quite a bit of realization in terms of the taste and quality of these organic products. The sheer taste of Organic itself is so different that it uplifts the flavor profile of any recipe. And it’s not only me, there are others too, making recipes, sharing how wonderful it is to go organic.
