Sugar Free Orange Tea Cake


I love to make this Orange Tea Cake, for friends or for the kids after school.  It is a pretty simple cake to make and is really worth it when you taste the delicious results. I bake it in a loaf tin, but you can use a round tin if preferred. My sugar free recipe uses the whole orange, peel included. I love the fact that the nutritious peel has over 200% more fibre and Vitamin C than the flesh of the fruit.

Orange Tea Cake Recipe

Makes 18 slices


  • Melted butter or light olive oil, for greasing 
  • 250g whole orange, unpeeled 
  • 100g Perfect Sweet™ xylitol 
  • 250g almond meal 
  • 4 X-large eggs 
  • 1 tsp gluten free baking powder 


  1. Cook the orange whole, in a saucepan of boiling water for 1 hour until tender. Drain and cool. Halve and remove seeds. Do not remove the skin. 
  2. Preheat oven to 180˚C/160˚C fan-forced. Brush a 25cm x 7.5cm x 7.5cm deep straight-sided loaf pan with butter or oil to grease. Line base and the two long sides with baking paper, allowing ends to overhang pan edges. 
  3. Use a food processor to puree unpeeled orange and Perfect Sweet™ xylitol. Add almond meal, eggs and gluten free baking powder and process until combined. 
  4. Pour into prepared cake pan and bake for 1 hour or until a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean. Cool in pan.
