Fruity and delicious: easy peasy (vegan) orange cake

Mmm… This delicious orange cake is super easy to make and has a wonderfully fresh taste. You know that feeling when you want something fresh after dinner, but not just a piece of fruit? Then this orange cake is your best friend. Besides being super refreshing and tasty, oranges are also good for your health. Citrus fruits, including oranges, are:

  • rich in vitamins and minerals that have a variety of health benefits, including anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects.
  • a good source of fiber that helps improve digestion. Oranges contain a lot of soluble fiber.
  • fruits that are low in calories. They are therefore a sweet but certainly a healthy snack.
  • fruits that can improve heart health by improving cholesterol levels and lowering blood pressure.

And oh yes; the cake itself is completely vegan. For the topping, replace the cream cheese in a vegetable cream cheese (e.g. Soyananda or Violife) and your whole cake is vegan. Great, right?
