Equipment

  • medium sauce pan
  • 8 inch baking pan
  • mixer

Ingredients
  

  • 1 cup plain whole milk Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup half and half
  • 1/2 cup salted butter
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/8 teaspoon Celtic sea salt
  • 3 1/2 cups almond flour
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tbsp vanilla powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • Rind 1 orange

Instructions
 

  • In a medium saucepan add yogurt, half and half, butter, maple syrup and sea salt and bring to a boil while stirring. Remove from heat and let sit 3-4 minutes.
  • Blend together almond flour, eggs, vanilla powder, baking powder, orange rind and yogurt mixture until smooth.
  • Butter the bottom of an 8 inch circular tin. Transfer the batter to the pan and spread into an even layer. Bake at 350°F for approximately 30-35 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean in the middle.
  • Cut into thin triangles and enjoy! You can also lightly dust with confectionary sugar or top with a dollop of real whipped cream if desired.

Notes

Can adjust orange rind up or down depending on tastes. If you want a chocolate/orange cake melt 2-3 ounces of dark chocolate (over 85%) and drizzle into batter before baking.
Can use vanilla extract instead of vanilla powder (substitute 1:1).
