Ingredients

  • 1/2 C orange juice fresh is best
  • 1/4 C vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 C honey or agave
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 Tbsp orange zest
  • 1 1/2 C all-purpose flour or gluten free flour substitute
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 C coconut sugar optional

For the Icing (if using)

  • 1 C powdered sugar
  • 1 Tbsp orange juice
  • 1 Tbsp orange zest optional

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. 
  • Grease (with butter or oil) and flour your mini bundt pan or 1 large bundt pan*(see notes) very well, careful to get into all the crevices. 
  • Combine orange juice, vegetable oil, eggs, honey, vanilla extract and orange zest in a large bowl. Stir until combined.
  • Add the flour, baking powder and sugar to the wet mixture and mix just until combined.
  • Pour cakes evenly into pan and bake for 20-25 minutes or until they spring back when touched. 
  • Let cakes cool in pan for 10 minutes, then carefully remove and place on cooling rack. You may have to run a knife down the edges carefully to loosen. 

Icing

  • Sift powdered sugar in a small bowl. Stir in orange juice until you have a smooth syrup. 
  • Pour icing evenly over cake(s) and top with more orange zest.

Notes

*If you're using 1 large bundt pan, just double the recipe and increase baking time to 40-50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. 
**To keep this recipe completely free of refined sugar, you can skip the icing, or there is now a powdered sugar version of swerve that I've seen at health food stores. I haven't tried it yet, but if you do, let me know how it goes!
