Orange Polenta Cake Recipe

 Orange Polenta Cake

I made this cake sometime ago and never got the chance to upload the recipe. Pictures were taken in a hurry. I can promise you that it tastes better than it looks. Polenta adds a pleasant grainy texture and the cake is super moist.

  2. Mix together flour, sugar, almond meal and polenta. Add orange rind, orange juice, egg, honey and oil and mix to combine.
  3. Transfer the batter into the baking tray.
