Holiday Orange Gluten-Free Bundt Cake
This is the most amazingly delicious cake. Perfect for the holiday, it’s both sumptuous and simple. It’s special enough to make for a celebration–Fernanda made it for my birthday–but the recipe is easy enough to make as an everyday cake.
Here’s the crazy part: It’s actually gluten-free! If you’re looking for an easy gluten-free dessert, or if you just love a good gluten-free cake recipe, this perfectly moist Orange Cake is so joyful and sunny!
How to make this Orange Bundt Cake
This delicious gluten-free Orange Cake is simple. Anyone can make it! I’m not a baker, and I’m always a little intimidated by baking, but this is a foolproof recipe as long as you follow the instructions. You don’t even need to use a mixer! You simply whisk the ingredients together, bake, and glaze.
Our gluten-free bundt cake starts with rich Greek yogurt–this is what makes the cake so moist and almost creamy. Even when I’m indulging in sweets, I like to use the best ingredients possible, and Greek yogurt is packed with protein, so it’s the perfect star of the show for this cake!
I use Bob’s Red Mill Paleo Baking Flour. This post isn’t sponsored, but somehow this particular flour with this cake recipe is even better than an all-purpose flour. This recipe was developed to be gluten-free, and it’s perfect. No one will know it’s gluten-free, and changing the flour will change the cake, so definitely stick with our list of ingredients.
Let them eat cake!
I am a big proponent of embracing sweets while enjoying them in moderation. In my Year of Health, I learned that I’m not in the business of restricting myself, because that can lead to binging. Instead, I choose to enjoy sweets for everything they are and let them fit into a balanced lifestyle.
This cake is also the breakfast of champions. Roy loves to eat a slice with his cup of coffee. It’s also perfect at tea time, and I can guarantee that if you make this cake, it will be gone by the next day.

For the Bundt cake:
Liquid coconut oil, for greasing

2 cups plain unsweetened Greek yogurt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, melted
For the orange glaze:
1 cup powdered sugar
1 tablespoon orange juice
1 – 2 tablespoons milk
1/8 teaspoon orange zest
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Grease the bundt cake pan with liquid coconut oil.
In a large bowl add the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Using a whisk, mix to combine.
In another bowl whisk the eggs, unsweetened plain Greek yogurt, vanilla and orange zest until well combined. Gently fold the ingredients to the dry ingredients until fully incorporated.
Lastly add the melted butter and whisk to combine. Transfer the batter into a the prepared bundt cake pan and bake for 40 to 60 minutes. Check the cake at 40 minutes but bake until a toothpick comes out clean.
Allow the cake to cool for about 10 minutes. Slide a sharp, thin knife in between the cake and the pan to separate the cake from the sides, then give the pan a shake to to further loosen the cake. Flip onto a serving plate and set aside to cool completely.
In a small bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar, orange juice, milk and orange zest. Pour over the bundt cake and enjoy! Feel free to garnish with orange slices, rosemary, cinnamon sticks or fresh cranberries.
