Well hello there cake! It’s been a while!
I know. I’ve neglected you and I’ve traded you for cookies and pancakes, but you still have a place in my heart.
Jokes aside, I haven’t baked a cake in SO long!
What’s wrong with me?
I had made an orange and olive oil cake a few years ago and it was a major hit for both of us. (The answer is yes to your “You guys ate it by yourself ?” question)
So when we got our weekly box from Eating Well Ottawa and saw that we had oranges and grapefruits, I immediately thought of making a similar cake.
Plus, let’s be honest, any excuse is a good excuse to make cake.
Last week was Karl’s birthday (and also one of my very good friend’s birthday) so I decided to make her a good cake. I also have to mention that she is gluten intolerant so I had to alter my cake recipe to remove any sot of gluten in it :).
Gluten-Free Orange and Grapefruit cake. Done!
So I found this GF cake recipe and altered it to use healthier ingredients. Worked out great!
Do you have a GF intolerant friend? If so, sounds to me like you’ve got a great excuse to make this cake!
Enjoy my lovelies!
