Looking for a quick and easy cake that brightens your day? Yes, please. This paleo orange cake is so easy to make you don’t even need a mixer. 

The cake is moist, soft, and filled with lots of orange flavor. Best of all, you can eat this cake for breakfast or enjoy it as an afternoon snack or dessert. 

Why Does My Orange Cake Taste Bitter

The orange flavor comes from the fresh orange zest and orange juice. If your orange cake is bitter, it’s because you grated the white part of the peel into the batter. Only grate the orange part of the peel. 

Why Is My Orange Cake Dry

There are several reasons why your orange cake may be dry. You may have measured the ingredients incorrectly. Your oven temperature may be too high, or you may have baked the orange cake too long. To prevent your orange cake from being dry, follow the recipe.

Tips For Making Paleo Orange Cake

Use fresh orange juice and zest. They will give the cake a strong orange flavor. 

Zest the oranges first, then juice them. It is harder to zest the orange once you have already cut ad juiced it. 

Paleo cakes always have a way of sticking to the pan, even if you spray it really well with non-stick cooking spray. I have tried baking several paleo cakes in a Bundt cake pan, but they always stick to the pan. That’s why I chose to bake in a loaf pan. It is much easier to take the orange cake out of a loaf pan. 

Line your loaf pan with parchment paper. The orange cake will slide right out of the pan. You will only have to peel the parchment paper away from the cake. 

Let the orange cake cool completely before you cut it. This orange cake is extremely delicate. It could fall apart if you try to cut it while it is warm or hot. So let it cool completely before slicing it.
