Moist Paleo Cassava Flour Orange Cake (Sugar-Free) 

This easy, blended, tasteful, and moist cake it`s like a burst of sunshine in the Summertime! 🍊

The flavor and aroma invading your home for the oranges without being in excess, nor leaving the acid taste in your mouth, this cake is simply FANTASTIC! I tell you, you can not stop trying this recipe, in my house, it did not last more than two days, you can name it when you will try it out, and you`ll feel what I am into, it`s magical... without exaggerating in anything. I thought that it would be too much but it has the perfect amount of sweetness and acidity that it be compensated with the cassava flour and the yogurt that makes a not dense cake as sometimes the cassava does.

Don`t panic, please! This recipe has 2 whole small sweeter fresh oranges blended in the dough differently than when I did the other orange cake with almond flour it`s delicious but in that recipe, I boiled them but in this one, I  just wash, cut, and blend them! so easy, and for me, it works much better.

It`s also, completely paleo, gluten-free, gut-health from the cassava, sugar-free (only has 3 g sugar per serving of the oranges), and vegan (for the ones that eat eggs). Nothing makes me happier than eating healthy.

This is my best way to help you out, make healthy recipes, and share what I know. I always was a healthy person until 5 years ago, recently I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease, which I suspected for a long time when I started to feel bad, I also, have a small nodule on the right side of the thyroid, but due to not having medical insurance years before, I only dared to investigate what was happening to me and discover that everything, so listen to me please, all Diseases start from the gut, so I changed what I ate and improved my diet, as far as it is possible, all this has helped me greatly but I have had the disease for years, and now I have to treat it accordingly. Now I need to do many more tests and to know exactly what I'm going to take trying to make it as natural as possible to balance my hormones and deciding whether I can pay for them or not, so guys this is not a game, this is very serious, and while I am not a doctor or a health practitioner, and you always have to go see them first at all,  hear your body, it`s always sending you signs and warns when something does not work properly.

For my cassava lovers out there! 😍 as I told you this is one of the lots of recipes I will try and then share with you because cassava it`s so yummy, healthy, and healing that I don`t want to stop making these recipes, are you with me?  I have some recipes here but if you want to see others I have an Instagram friend called Lauren you can see them on her blog

I am using more the monk fruit sweetener because it`s healthy, does not have any glycemic index, has traces of vitamins and minerals, the carbs that it provides are from the sugar alcohol of erythritol, which doesn`t count as carbs, it`s very helpful and good for the diabetic persons or just anyone that does not want to add sugar in he/she food or desserts and does not add any aftertaste like stevia does, but of course, you can use any sweetener that you want, and the proportion will be the same 1:1.

I know food habits have been changing rapidly, there are a bunch of sick people around the globe, and they are discovering what has been causing this and as a consequence, some of them have stopped buying many things and sellers have no choice but to bring healthy products for everyone, that is the case I have been seeing at Walmart now they have some of organics and NON-GMO products at good prices that I love, even I have been seeing cassava flour organic and non-organic, so you don`t have to buy it in another place if you don`t want to! This is great, right? So grab it from them, they sell it for 1 pound in a bag.

Jump to the recipe and in less than one hour you are eating this cake with a coffee cup, a chocolate shake or a hot one, a slice for dessert or a snack, or why not as a cake celebration, birthday, Mother`s Day, Valentine's day, holidays, etc. if that person loves the orange taste. 


Moist Paleo Cassava Flour Orange Cake (Sugar-Free, Gut-health, Gluten-Free, Vegan, Grain-free).jpg

Preparation Time: 10 min
Bake Time: 35 min
Total Time: 45 min without cooling time.
The recipe makes around 10 slices                                                                                                        

  1. 1 cup cassava flour (I used Ottos`s but it can be done with another one)
  2. 2 small sweeter whole oranges or: 1 1/2 medium, 1 bigger
  3. 3 large eggs or 4 smaller ones at room temperature
  4. 1 cup monk fruit or another sweetener or lesser if you want it less sweet)
  5. 1/2 tsp pink or sea salt
  6. 1 tsp baking powder
  7. 1/2 tsp baking soda
  8. 1/4 + 2 tbsp cup coconut yogurt or your preferred one, adjust the yogurt, see the instructions below.
  9. 1 tsp vanilla extract
  10. 1/2 cup avocado, coconut oil, or ghee melted

Preheat oven to 350 F.

Line the bottom of the 8-inch pan with parchment paper, then grease it. Set it aside.

In a small bowl, measure the cassava flour with a spoon and stir it with the baking powder and baking soda just to combine.

Wash thoroughly the two oranges, if they are not organic, place them in a pot with water and baking powder for about 1 hour, then wash them and dry them with a towel. Cut the two ends of them carefully on a cutting board just to remove the hard part, don`t lose any juice, and chop them taking the seeds out.

In the food processor or blender place the chopped oranges, and blend them until smooth.

Add eggs, yogurt, oil, sugar, salt, and vanilla extract, and blend all together. 

Note about the yogurt: Depending on the type of yogurt, if it is Greek kind add only 1/4 cup if it is more liquid, follow the steps of the recipe above.

Throw the mixed cassava flour and pulse until well combined, don`t over-blend it or transfer the batter to a bowl and mix it up with a spatula with the cassava flour until no lumps are remaining. Let it rest for about 5 minutes or so.

Pour it into the baking pan, and bake it between 35-45 minutes until a toothpick in the center comes clean and springs back.

If you see it`s turning brown before its cooked, I usually use parchment paper over the pan with small holes I do with a point sharp knife or use aluminum foil (I don`t recommend using it because it transfers metal toxins to the food, lesser when the food or dessert has acid in it like this one)

When it`s done, transfer it to a cooling rack, and wait for 1, 2, 3, 4, 5...... hahaha if you can, nope it`s joking, let it be cooled completely for about 30 minutes - 1 hour, pass a knife for the edges, put in the plate, and enjoy it!

  • You can double the recipe and bake it in two 8-inch pans, then make a yummy frosting (I have something in mind but it`s a surprise in the coming days) 😄or powdered monk fruit sweetener, or make a simple chocolate frosting as I did in my older recipe I will let it below.

  • My oranges had a strong orange color and were very sweet, but if what you have aren`t like that, maybe you will need to add a little bit more sweetener, and instead of food coloring add about 1/4 tsp turmeric 😉

  • I left 2 days on the counter with a cake lid on, I can`t tell you how many days it will stay there because we devoured it before, but I recommend transferring it to the fridge in an airtight container for more days and up to 1 week. For best flavor results, leave it out of the fridge for about 15 minutes before it is eaten.

  1. I agree with a lot of the points you made in this article. If you are looking for the Johor Bahru
    , then visit The Craver’s Guide. I appreciate the work you have put into this and hope you continue writing on this subject.

    1. Aww! thank you again Krishi, it seems that you are passing a good trip over there tasting foods and commenting, I will love to do that too.

  2. Mine needed 45 min baking and then I left in in turned off oven for the night. But turned out really good

    1. Hi there! I think is because all cassava flours are not made in the same way, some are with young cassava and others with more fibrous and old ones, also the ovens have different calibrations, also, the yogurts are different too some have more liquid than others, so I say maybe, you can take it out 1 or 2 tablespoons of it, but I am so happy you like it, you make my day, thanks so much for giving me all the explanation that can help another person too. Happy baking!

  3. Do you mean to say...remove the peel from the oranges?

  4. Hi there! You will use the whole orange, only take off the small part of the bottoms and the seeds. Let me know how it turned out. Thanks!
