Last week I received a fresh delivery including 2 new body wash fragrances from Le Petit Marseillais, (that both smell oh-so-amazing!) along with a beautiful wooden crate filled with juicy limes and mandarines! I’ve been wanting to do a citrus cake for a while and this was the perfect opportunity to come up with a healthier version of a lime cake drizzled with a mandarine glaze. After a few trials, a finally perfected this light, moist and citrusy treat that is really easy to whip up and pretty healthy for a cake recipe. A perfect dessert for the whole family to enjoy or to impress your guests next time you are hosting! I will definitely have this on the table for Easter brunch this year!
yield: 1 bundt cake prep time: 15 minutes cook time: 60 minutes
FOR THE CAKE:
- 1 1/2 cups All-Purpose White Flour (I use Organic Unbleached )
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 2 tablespoons lime zest
- 3/4 cup almond milk
- 1/2 cup coconut oil, melted and cooled
- 2 large eggs, slightly beaten
- 2 teaspoons fresh lime juice
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
FOR THE MANDARINE GLAZE:
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 1 tablespoon almond milk
- 3 tablespoons fresh mandarine juice
- Preheat oven to 350° F (325°F for convection) .
- Generously grease a bundt pan, dust it with flour & knock out any extra.
- In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, and baking powder.
- In a small bowl, combine sugar & lime zest. Rub together with your fingers until fragrant. Whisk into the flour mixture & set aside.
- In a separate bowl, combine the almond milk, coconut oil, eggs, lime juice and vanilla extract.
- Slowly add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients. Stir until combined.
- Pour batter into prepared bundt pan.
- Bake for 40 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean.
- Place the cake upside down on a cooling rack and let it cool for about 15 minutes before removing it from the mold. Loosen the sides of the cake with a knife. Carefully remove from the pan & let cool completely on wire rack.
- While the cake is cooling, make the mandarine glaze. In a small bowl, whisk together powdered sugar, almond milk and mandarine juice. Drizzle the glaze on the cooled cake.
- Cut into slices and Enjoy!
