Ingredients

Traditional Version

Gluten-Free Version

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 350F.
  • In a standing mixer, blend for 3 minutes the sugar, the orange (cut in super small pieces with the peel, don't peel it!) and the 3 eggs at mid-high speed.
  • Add the almond extract, softened butter, Canola Oil and Greek yogurt and mix for 45 seconds at a low-medium speed.
  • Add the remaining ingredients (except the frosting and mini chocolate chips) and mix for 20 seconds at low-medium speed.
  • Prepare a bundt pan or a 9x13 cake pan with some butter and flour to ensure no sticking occurs. If you are using a bundt mold, you want to ensure the dish is coated well so no sticking and crumbles occur.
  • Pour half the mix into the pan. 
  • Next, add half the chocolate chips into the wet mixture.
  • Place your pan into the oven and bake for 38-40 minutes if using a cake pan. If using the bundt pan, it will take about 45-50 minutes to cook. You'll know it's done when a toothpick placed into the cake comes out clean and the cake turns a nice golden color.

Frosting or Ice Cream?
This is where it gets fun! Diego served this cake with vanilla ice cream and no frosting but I added my Homemade Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting to this cake! The recipe can be found here:

Yeast
Let's talk about using yeast for a minute. My daughter is allergic to yeast so I substitute out the yeast and use 1 Tablespoon of baking powder! Easy Peasy!
