Honey Orange Almond Cake

Gluten-Free Honey Almond Orange Cake

I love the combination of honey and almonds. It’s sophisticated yet homey, simple yet interesting. It also reminds me of my mother. She used to make this delicious honey almond cake for teatime (yes, we had teatime; she was British). The recipe I’ve made for you today is an easier version of her delicious cake, plus it’s grain-free and dairy-free, too!

For this cake, I’ve used organic honey. The honey really shines so I like to use quality honey that comes from a sustainable source (got to save the honey bees!). Plus, did you know that a lot of honey around the world contains pesticide residues? Yeah, quality definitely matters here, and that’s why I used Wholesome Organic Honey.

Just a quick note to ensure the cake comes out just right – if you don’t have an 8-inch springform pan to use, a deep 9-inch cake pan will work or don’t fill the pan all the way or it will overflow.

Got to go … it’s teatime!

  • cup Wholesome Organic Honey
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • ½ cup orange marmalade
  • ¾ cup blanched slivered almonds
