  3. Transfer the pieces in a food processor and process until completely blended.
  4. Add in the eggs, vanilla and spices, and blend well.

  8. If you can tolerate coconut, sift a teaspoon of coconut flour on top of your nut free paleo orange cake and, if you like, serve it with some coconut yogurt and berries.
