Vegan Orange Cake made with Oranges Lemons and Tofu

Recipe Ingredients for Vegan Orange Cake

2 oranges
60 gram lemon
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 tablespoon orange flower water
2 teaspoons vanilla
6 oz Firm Silken Tofu
1/2 teaspoon salt
1.67 cups sugar
1 1/2 cups almonds
1/2 cup olive oil

Recipe Directions for Vegan Orange Cake

  1. Preheat over to 350 F.

  2. Grease a 13x9 inch pan or two 8 inch cake pans.

  3. Place oranges and lemon in a saucepan with enough water to cover most of the way. Bring to a boil and cook for half an hour or until the fruit is very tender. Drain and cool.

  4. Seed the citrus fruit and cut into quarters. Place citrus into a blender or food processor and blend until smooth. Add tofu and process until well blended. Empty into a large bowl and add sugar, vanilla, salt, and orange flower water (if using). Stir to combine.

  5. Sift the flour and baking powder together in a small bowl and combine with the ground almonds. Mix well.

  6. Starting and ending with the flour alternatively add the wet and dry ingredients, stirring just until mixed (add 1/3 of the flour and mix, add 1/3 cup of olive oil and mix, third flour, rest of olive oil, and rest of flour mixture). Do not over mix.

  7. Pour into your baking pan(s) and bake until an inserted toothpick produces only moist crumbs not liquid. For the 13x9 inch pan this will take about 1 hour and 20 minutes [5]. For the 8 inch pans, probably 45 minutes to 1 hour.

  8. When cool, cut into small pieces and dust with powdered sugar. Serve with raspberry coulis or lemon curd.
