Recipe type: Gluten-Free, Cakes & Muffins
Serves: 10-12 servings
Orange-Cranberry Bundt Cake:
  • 2¾ cups gluten-free all-purpose flour (I use Bobs Red Mill Gluten-Free 1-to-1 Baking Flour or King Arthur Gluten-Free Flour)
  • ¼ cup coconut flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • ¼ cup freshly grated orange peel
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 egg yolks
  • ¾ cup honey or maple syrup (I used half of each)
  • ¾ cup orange juice, pulp strained
  • ¾ cup almond milk or other milk of choice
  • 1 cup cranberries
White Chocolate-Orange Glaze:
  • 3-4 tablespoons full-fat coconut milk/heavy cream and/or orange juice (I used half of each)
  • ½ cup white chocolate, chips or chopped
  • 1-2 teaspoons freshly grated orange peel
Sugared Cranberries (optional):
  • ½ cup sugar + ½-1 cup extra for coating cranberries
  • ¼ cup water
  • 2 cups cranberries
Sugared Cranberries:
  1. Combine ½ cup sugar and water in a small saucepan. Bring to a simmer and cook until sugar is dissolved and syrup coats the back of a spoon. Let cool.
  2. Meanwhile, place ½ cup sugar in a bowl.
  3. Once the syrup is cooled, stir in cranberries until all are evenly coated with the syrup. Remove with a slotted spoon and transfer to the sugar bowl.
  4. Toss the berries in sugar and place onto a large baking dish to dry. Repeat with remaining cranberries until all are coated, adding more sugar to the sugar bowl as needed.
Orange-Cranberry Bundt Cake:
  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Use a pastry brush to liberally brush the inside of your bundt pan (10-12 cup capacity) with palm shortening or coconut oil. Set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together flours, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, begin to beat butter until fluffy. Mix in orange zest and add eggs, one at a time, until evenly blended. Add honey/maple syrup.
  4. Slowly mix in flour mixture, alternating with orange juice and milk, until all are evenly incorporated. Stop and scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed. Stir in cranberries.
  5. Pour mixture into the prepared bundt pan and spread to evenly distribute. Place bundt pan onto a baking sheet and place into the oven, on the middle rack. Bake for 30-40 minutes, until center of cake is set and toothpick inserted near the middle comes out with just a few moist crumbs.
  6. Let cake cool completely in the pan on a wire rack. Once cooled, carefully invert cake onto cake plate. Drizzle with glaze and decorate with sugared cranberries. Makes 10-12 servings.
White Chocolate-Orange Glaze:
  1. Place 3 tablespoons coconut milk, white chocolate, and grated orange peel into a heat-safe bowl over a pot of boiling water, stirring often until chocolate is melted.
  2. Ganache should drizzle easily from your spoon. If mixture is too thick, stir in an extra ½-1 tablespoon of coconut milk.
  3. This glaze starts to firm up as it cools so you'll want to drizzle it soon after removing it from the heat.
