Almond-Orange Cake with Vanilla-Orange Frosting

An amazing flourless cake with buttercream frosting and candied orange zest

Moist, balanced and yummy!

This Almond Orange Cake with Vanilla Orange Buttercream Frosting is an amazing gluten-free cake topped with candied orange zest and sliced almonds.  I first made it for my birthday last year and made it again this year because it’s that good!

Recipe from Simply Glutenfree, it’s an old fashioned, made-from-scratch flourless cake. The cake itself is just Almond “flour”, orange zest, sugar & eggs. The frosting is simply butter (I actually used Earth Balance so it was dairy free too), powdered sugar, vanilla & lots of orange juice. And the candied orange zest & sliced almonds are the perfect finishing touches each adding great flavor and texture.

Moist, perfectly balanced & so YUMMY, this cake was a hit at my birthday celebration last night .
