Orange Pulp Layer Cake

You'll need:
2 cups wholemeal flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon bi-carb soda
2 Tablespoons raw sugar

Combine in a bowl. Make a well in the center and add:

1/4 cup apple sauce
2 teaspoons orange flower water
1 cup almond milk

Stir all ingredients until well combined.
Pour 1/2-2/3 mixtures into a lined rectangular baking pan.
Scatter raisins over the mixture.
Top with orange juice pulp (as much or little as you desire - I used about 1 cup).

Pour the rest of the cake mixture over the top and spread over the cake til the pulp is completely covered.
Bake in a preheated 180C oven for 30 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the middle comes out clean.
Allow to cool before slicing. For best results use a serrated knife.
I just love how the layer is visible!
Is it just me or is the layer just sooo pretty???? lol
I had to take so many pictures!!!
Delicious plain, however if you'd like to add an 'icing' - I recommend blending almonds & orange juice together and spreading over the top.

- Don't have a juicer - you could always use grated carrots in place of the orange juice pulp, or alter the flavour by using other pulp.
- Orange flower water can be found in MiddleEastern-type shops - alternatively just use 2 Tablespoons orange juice.


  1. This looks yummy! I must give it a try but I have no juicer :(

    1. oh no that's a shame. You could just use sliced orange instead perhaps.....
