This is the favourite cake in our house at the moment. We love it as it is very easy to make, healthy and great for breakfast or as a snack. Orange and pecans create a perfect fit for this cake. Taste is best described as very yummy :).
Orange Pecan cake is ridiculously easy to make. You just need to put all ingredients together in a bowl, mix until combined and then bake. It is very soft and light, great for a snack. We eat it often for breakfast in combination with green detox juice.

- ⅔ cup of coconut blossom sugar
- 2 tsp of baking powder
- 1 pinch of salt
- ½ cup of melted coconut oil
- 1 cup of fresh squeezed orange juice
- 3 Tbsp of orange zest
- 1/2 cup of ground pecans
- 1 egg (for vegans without egg)
- 1/4 cups of oat milk
Put flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and grounded pecans in a bowl. Mix it all until well combined.
Add coconut oil, juice, egg (for vegans without egg) and oat milk to it and mix it together.
