Orange and Coconut Cake

Yes we still going nutty over Oranges here. They are going to be thrown out if I don’t squeeze all of them this weekend.
I decided to make a cake to give away (of course) to see whether I could just bulk bake, freeze and then give gifts of orangey goodness. My husband said I should sell them in a cake stall…..

I remember making coconut flour cupcakes about a year ago for my daughter and they tasted pretty darn good so I winged the recipe a bit by adding coconut kefir as a probiotic alternative and made what my ‘taste testers’ have said is a good enough cake. I think with some orange cashew cream or maybe an almond maple glaze with orange segments, this would be a great afternoon tea cake to take anywhere.
