Servings 6


  • 150 g Self Raising Flour
  • 80 g Caster Sugar
  • ¼ tsp Salt
  • ½ tsp Baking Powder
  • 100 ml Almond Milk
  • 60 g Coconut Oil
  • 60 g Apple Sauce
  • 50 ml Water
  • 2 tsp Valencian Orange Extract
  • 2 Tangerine (thinly sliced)
  • icing sugar (for dusting)


  • Preheat oven 180°C.
  • In a bowl mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.
  • In another bowl mix together the milk, coconut oil, apple sauce,
    water and orange extract.
  • Slowly combine the wet ingredients into the dry, whilst whisking
    until you have smooth batter.
  • Brush 6 small fluted cake pans with some coconut oil and then give
    them a light dusting of flour. This will help the cakes release from
    the pans easier at the end.
  • Fill each fluted pan to around halfway with the batter and put a
    slice of tangerine on top of each.
  • Place in the oven and bake for 30 minutes, or until golden.
  • Remove from the pans and leave to cool.
  • Once cool, you can serve with a light dusting of icing sugar.
