Hi There!

Welcome

I'm Mikhaela.

I quit sugar four years ago when I was pregnant with my first son. It was making me fat, sick, lethargic... miserable. It was hard, but I got there. The reward has been incredible. For me and my family.

This is a personal blog. A place that I share #refinedsugarfree recipes and other family favourites.

Thanks for stopping by.

LÓrange Cake

LÓrange Cake

  • Preheat oven to 160
  • First to make the orange: Put 1 cup white sugar, the seeds of 1 vanilla pod and 1/2 cup of water in a saucepan, stir over medium heat until dissolved. Then add thin orange slices – Use 2 oranges, disposing of the ends. Cook over a gentle heat for about 10-15 minutes until orange is softened (this is why very thin slices are best). Once, done, remove from heat.
  • Line the cake tin and add the orange slices carefully so they are overlapping nicely. Juice goes in too.
  • In a mixer, beat 2 eggs, 1/2 cup of castor sugar and 1/2 tsp vanilla for about 10 minutes until the mix is pale and tripled in size..
  • Stir in  sifted 1 1/2 cup of SR flour, 1/2 cup almond meal, and 75 gms of melted butter.
  • Pour the cake mix carefully over the oranges and bake for 35-40 minutes. You may need to cover with foil towards the end to stop it from drying out.

Amen to that
