These dairy free almond orange cakes are delicious and quick to bake. The cakes are soft and spongy with the lovely fragrance of ground almond and orange. You don’t have to use a cake mixer to mix the ingredients, only for whisking the egg whites. Then fold the egg whites into the flour mixture, scoop or pour them into the cupcake liners and pop them into the oven to bake. Definitely great for an afternoon tea or anytime of the day.
I adapted the recipe from ‘here‘ using rice flour but change the flour ingredients with some adjustments as I find the taste a bit bland after my first attempt.
