- Preheat the oven to 190°C. Mix eggs and sugar in a food processor. Add remaining ingredients and mix well.
- Grease a coffee cake tin (a round cake tin with a hole in the middle). Pour in the cake mixture and bake for 35 minutes. Test with a skewer. If not done yet (if skewer comes out with bits of cake batter stuck to it), reduce heat to 150°C and bake for another 10 minutes, then test again.
- Remove cake from oven and cool. Serve with a dollop of low-fat plain yoghurt.
If your regular diet is low in refined sugar, you can omit the castor sugar from this recipe. The result will still taste sweet to you because of the orange juice and coconut flour.
Make it gluten free: Check baking powder is gluten free.
This cake tastes delicious freshly baked or the next day, so you can make it in advance.
You can use muffin tins instead of a cake tin – the baking time will be 18-20 minutes.
