How to make this Orange Bundt Cake

Our gluten free bundt cake starts with Icelandic Provisions Plain Skyr. 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. Skyr is packed with protein and way less sugar than normal yogurt. It’s creamier, and quite frankly, more delicious. It’s the perfect star of the show for this cake!

To keep the cake gluten free, you can use a grain free flour of your choice. We love to use Paleo Baking Flour for all of our baking needs. Then, of course, we need the sugar and butter to bring this together. We are not going halfway on sweets around here. We are enjoying delicious foods, whether it’s roasted vegetables or a gluten free cake!

I am a big proponent of embracing sweets and enjoying them in moderation. In my Year of Health, I’ve learned I’m not in the business of restricting myself because I also find that it leads to binging big time. Instead, I choose to enjoy sweets for everything they are! And I know that can fit in a balanced lifestyle.

What Makes this Gluten Free Cake So Fabulous

This cake is make with lots of orange zest for the perfect citrus flavor. It is the perfect pair with the Icelandic Provisions Plain Skyr. Fernanda truly found the most amazing balance of flavors to create an unbelievable cake. I’m not exaggerating! This gluten free bundt cake is truly next level.

Another thing I love is that even though this cake of course involves some sugar and butter, the Skyr really helps makes sure we don’t have a total crash after the sugar. It is packed with so much protein that you’ll feel fantastic after this treat. I mean, what more could you ask for?! Can you tell how much I love this cake? I pretty much want it for every birthday from here on out.
