Ingredients:- 4 tbsp Dark Horse Organic's Rose Gold Wildflower Honey
- 1.75 cups unsweetened plant-based milk
- 2 oz Monfefo turmeric
- 2 mandarin oranges
- 1 orange for slicing
- 1 cup of olive oil
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tbsp baking powder
- 3.25 cups almond flour
- 4 sprigs rosemary
Add 3 tbsp of honey in a cup with 1.75 cups of unsweetened plant-based milk. Simmer until the honey is well mixed. Let it cool. In a bowl, mix together 2 fresh squeezed mandarin oranges, zest of both mandarins, 1 oz Monfefo turmeric, and the plant milk honey infusion. Add in salt and baking soda, followed by drizzling in 1 cup of olive oil, and mixing all together. Slowly add in 3.25 cups of almond flour, followed by 2 sprigs of rosemary.
Bake at 350 degrees for 60 minutes. While the cake is baking, in a pot on a slow simmer add in 1 tbsp of honey with 1 oz of Monfefo turmeric. Once the honey has melted, add in your sliced orange and let it simmer for 15-20 minutes. Once the cake is done baking, let it cool for 20-30 minutes. To finish, layer on the orange slices and a few more sprigs of rosemary or anything else from the garden, and begin serving.
