  • 1 Organic Orange about 180 gr
  • 2 tbsp Raw Honey
  • 3 Free Range Eggs
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1/8 tsp Cinnamon Powder
  • 1/8 tsp Ginger Powder
  • 40 gr Cassava Flour
  • 35 gr Tigernut Flour
  • 5 gr Baking Soda
  • 5 gr Cream of Tartar
  • *1 tsp Coconut Flour *optional, for garnishing


  • Preheat the oven to 350 F.
  • Wash the orange and cut in pieces (yes, with the skin and everything. Just make sure to remove the seeds).
  • Transfer the pieces in a food processor and process until completely blended.
  • Add in the eggs, vanilla and spices, and blend well.
  • Lastly, add in the flour, process again and when the when the batter is smooth, add in the baking soda and cream of tartar.
  • Mix again for a few second and then transfer the batter to a medium sized baking pan (I used a silicon mold).
  • Bake at 350 F for 20 minutes, than turn off the oven, leave your orange paleo cake inside for 5 more minutes, then take it out and let cool.
  • 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.
