Happy birthday to me! This ALMOND ORANGE CAKE is making my day even sweeter.

This cake has become a bit of a tradition as it’s the third year in a row I’ve made it for my birthday — it’s that good!

Recipe from Simply Glutenfree, it’s an old fashioned, made-from-scratch flourless cake made with Almond flour and lots of orange zest.  It’s topped with a Vanilla Orange Buttercream Frosting.  And candied orange zest & sliced almonds are the perfect finishing touches each adding great flavor and texture.

Moist, perfectly balanced & so YUMMY, this cake is always a crowdpleaser.

For those celebrating the Jewish holidays, it is actually originally a Passover cake and my friends who’ve tried it say it’s better than any Passover cake they’ve ever tried.
