Outstanding cake recipe and so simple and easy to make. We loved this moist, orange-flavored cake and we are not gluten free or lactose intolerant. I weighed the ground almonds as per the tv episode to 250 grams and used that amount. I went and added the 1 and 1/4 cup regular sugar as per the written food network recipe, because although in the tv"

Awesome dessert!!! I reduced the amount of vegetable oil to 1/4 cup by making up the difference with 1/4 cup applesauce. For the flour, I combined equal parts all-purpose flour and whole wheat pastry flour. I added 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon and 1/8 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg. For the nuts, I only used a generous 1/2 cup walnuts, toasted and"

I made this as an anytime snack for myself. It is delicious, healthy, and satisfying. Tastes just like guacamole. You do not notice the beans at all. I skipped the jalapeno and used one light-green, minced pepperoncini without the seeds, just because jalapenos are too hot for me. ""
