DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  • Cover the bottom of a 9" circular baking pan with parchment paper, then spray the inside of the pan lightly with baking spray.
  • Stir together the flour mix, baking powder, baking soda, nutmeg, cinnamon and salt. Set aside.
  • Separate the eggs. In one bowl, beat the egg whites until they form stiff peaks. In another bowl, combine egg yolks, sugar, honey, oil, applesauce and orange zest.
  • Using a whisk or hand beater, add the flour mixture and orange juice to the wet mixture slowly. When mixed thoroughly, fold the egg whites carefully into the batter, stirring just until ingredients are fully combined.
  • Pour batter into pan, and bake in the preheated oven for 45-50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the cake's center comes out with just a few crumbs on it. Remove from oven and allow to cool before carefully removing from pan and placing onto a cooling rack.
