Keto Orange Cake with Clove and Olive Oil

  • Preparation time: Only 15 minutes
  • Cooking time: 1 hour and 15 minutes
  • The recipe makes a 9″ round cake

This keto orange cake recipe is adapted from the famous Maialino’s Olive Oil Cake. I substituted almond and coconut flours to replace the “all-purpose” flour, and I replace sugar with monk fruit extract. Love the addition of cloves to compliment the orange. Makes a very moist cake with a bread-pudding-like consistency. —RK Barry
