A recipe I need to try! Looks scrumptious. From here: Sorry for the weird flour measurements, Zaar is silly sometimes.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease and flour a loaf pan.
  2. Combine buttermilk, orange juice and vanilla in a small bowl and set aside.
  3. Sift together flours, almond meal, xanthum gum, salt, baking powder, and baking soda. Set the dry ingredient mixture aside.
  4. In a large bowl, cream sugar and butter (beat with electric mixer about 3 minutes, until fluffy).
  5. Beat in eggs - one at a time - and chase it with the orange zest. Alternate adding the wet and dry ingredient mixtures to the batter, starting and ending with the flour.
  6. Pour batter into prepared pan and smooth the top. Bake for 45 - 50 minutes, or until a tooth pick comes out clean.
  7. Remove the cake from the oven and let stand for at least five minutes.
  8. Turn the pan over on a plate or rack. While the cake cools an additional five minutes, make the orange vanilla syrup.
  9. In a small pot, combine sugar, orange juice, and vanilla. Heat on medium heat and stir until the sugar dissolves and the mixture becomes a little thick (about three minutes). Spoon some or all of the mixture on top of the cake.
  10. When you're ready to serve: in a small bowl, mix 1 - 2 Tablespoons of orange juice with the powdered sugar to form a thick orange glaze. Drizzle some or all on top of the cake.
