SF/GF Orange & Clove Olive Oil Cake (Low-Carb/Keto Friendly)

May  2, 2019
Author Notes

Adapated from Maialino's Olive Oil Cake. Substituted almond and coconut flours for all purpose flour and monkfruit sweetener for refined sugar to make this cake sugar-free, gluten-free, and low-carb/Keto friendly. Eliminated Grand Marnier, but added cloves which pair so nicely with the orange flavor. Makes a very moist and tender cake with a bread-pudding-like center. —RK Barry
