Gluten-Free Orange and Olive Oil Cake

Sink your fork into this rustic coffee cake, refreshingly flavoured with fresh oranges. This tasty gluten-free cake is also dairy free and is sweetened with fresh orange juice and pure maple syrup instead of refined sugar. The almond flour adds protein and fiber. You can freeze any leftover cake in an airtight container for future use. Kids especially love to eat this cake because it has oranges throughout which ads a fresh orange flavour and makes the cake deliciously moist
