A Fabulously Good Chocolate Orange Cake -- A Free Recipe!

Thanks to the amazing discovery that ground flax seed is a good replacement for eggs in baked goods I’ve been working to develop some new recipes free of ingredients that trigger allergies. It was important to me to find out whether foods I knew I would like and could eat would work with this substitution.


A Cake Experiment


This recipe is my first dessert experiment using a new-to-me egg substitution with my other tried and true substitutions, such as coconut oil for butter. If the ground flax seed egg replacement did not work with chocolate and the other substitutions I need there would not be much point in my trying the egg substitution again–this egg free cake was a must try.

Well, any hesitation or question about using this egg substitution was instantly blown to the wind with the first bite of my chocolate orange cake. More experiments will definitely follow and I'll try to share them here on HubPages.

The cake is on the dense side but not as heavy as brownies. Rich with favorite flavors that seem to follow each other, overlap, and then blend deliciously, this recipe will be a regular at our house. It makes music on the tongue, and yes, I am unashamedly singing its praises and boasting at the success!

When people learn about the high-quality ingredients they are doubly delighted with the cake. I secretly feel that it’s kind of silly for me to get the applause, though. How could anyone go wrong when using such goodness in a recipe?

Hope you like this milk free, egg free, gluten free, chocolate orange cake with a chocolate orange frosting as much as we and our guests have enjoyed it. It is not a low calorie dessert, but the calories are healthy ones as opposed to the nutritionally empty ones of many desserts.

We find my new chocolate orange cake dangerously good, and doubly so because it serves up simply yet elegantly, making any occasion special. We, therefore, will have to be careful not to overindulge!


Chocolate Orange Cake Ingredients

  • 1 Betty Crocker Gluten Free Cake Mix
  • 1/2 Cup Full-Flavored Coconut Oil
  • 1 Cup Orange Juice, Room Temperature, Fresh Squeezed if Possible
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Orange Extract, Not Imitation
  • 3 Tablespoons Golden Flax Seed, Finely Ground
  • 1/4 Cup Water

Flax, Juice, and Coconut Oil?

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven according to cake package directions.
  2. Prepare a 9" cake pan with baking spray.
  3. Set out orange juice to become room temperature and the coconut oil to become liquid. (Depending on the room temperature you may need to slightly warm the coconut oil in the microwave--very slightly!)
  4. In a medium-large mixing bowl, mix the ground flax seed with the water. Allow to sit and gel for 15 minutes.
  5. Mix the orange juice and orange extract with the gelled flax seed. (It took a few minutes to get them mixed evenly. I wound up using the electric mixer to blend them thoroughly.)
  6. Pour coconut oil into the juice and flax mixture while blending it in with the mixer.
  7. Add cake mix and blend, then mix according to directions, making sure that the flax mixture and cake mix are combined well. The batter will be thick, but not as thick as brownies.
  8. Pour batter into the prepared pan, spreading evenly, and bake according to package directions. (I find that the baking times for chocolate recipes are too long for my oven. I have to be careful not to over bake anything chocolate, especially since chocolate burns easily.)
  9. Cool for about 10 minutes and turn onto a pretty serving plate to finish cooling.
  10. Frost as soon as it is completely cooled. Be sure to check out the frosting recipe below.

• 1/4 Orange juice to replace the water

Can Flax Seed be Used as a Replacement for Egg in a Made-From-Scratch Cake?


No problem! Adapting the wonderful ingredients for this cow milk free, egg free, and gluten free recipe to a homemade cake recipe would be, excuse the cliche, a piece of cake. I’m hoping to come up with a made from scratch recipe soon. (If you beat me to it and write a hub about it, let me know so I can link it here!)

      This sounds delicious and I'm going to give it a try (after I buy the cake mix). It will be my dessert share at a potluck on Saturday at church-- I know that it will be a big hit! There are more and more people who are gluten-free eaters, and our community also includes a number of vegans, so this certainly fits the bill (along with being yummy). Thanks! ~Cynthia

      This cake really is a treat. The more I look at the relationship between gluten and illness the more interesting it becomes. It would be fabulous to hear back from you if you try your experiment. I would be especially interested if you write a hub about it and I think others would like to know the results, as well. Thanks much for sharing about the benefits your friend's received from eliminating gluten from their diets.

      Thanks for the recipe...it looks delicious in the picture.I have been considering making our house gluten free to see if it resolves my son's eczema and other health issues. A friend gave up gluten and her sinus allergies vanished and another friend said his depression completely vanished so it's worth a try. I will have to try this one.

      This cake did indeed have great texture. I'm hoping to get a good block of time to experiment more with what I've learned so far re gluten free baking. GF cooking is unique to us, but once I learned that the baking we are used to isn't the only easy way to get delicious foods, the healthier versions have even more appeal.

      Thanks much for coming by--am looking forward to checking out your food hubs!

      Hey--thanks bunches for passing the recipe to friends who must live gluten free! I hope it is helpful to them.

      Developing these recipes is interesting to me because living GF does not have to be complicated, and there really are all sorts of foods that can be enjoyed on a GF diet, as well as a dairy-free diet. These foods can be combined into recipes that everyone can enjoy together rather than our having to make two menus when feeding a family or group of friends with various health needs.

      As I continue working with GF and dairy free ingredients I plan to quickly move from treats like this chocolate orange cake to side dishes. Lots of ideas--time to experiment and get responses on what I develop before I post them is the problem... C'est la vie!

      Hey ktrapp:

      I became curious when a friend who had a home bread baking business told me that she added gluten to her recipes after I noticed some health problems in her family. Long story short, one article led to another, I've listened to a few celiac friends, and I came to the point where I really question whether the added gluten in products might be at the root of some of our society's health issues.

      I've not given the strict paleo diet a trial run, but sometimes I wonder what would happen if I tested it out. The rabid premise of this particular diet's theories doesn't seem like it is based on common-sense to me--it seems imbalanced and I try to seek balance. I don't want to give up all grain-based foods, but I am being careful about foods with added gluten.

      Reading up on the gluten-free diets that celiacs must follow is a great place to start learning more about the effects of gluten. I've read enough to know that I don't want products with added gluten, and I am enjoying learning about using fabulous ingredients to make recipes such as the this gluten-free (GF) chocolate orange cake.

      BTW, I don't know why I didn't think to sprinkle orange zest on the top of this cake! :) Thanks much for coming back by. I may one day write that hub on added gluten in our diets...thanks for letting me know of your interest.

    • ktrapp profile image

      Kristin Trapp 5 years ago from Illinois

      ktrapp:

      This chocolate orange cake is definitely moist and rich, and very flavorful.

      GF is something we are leaning towards because of the effects of all the added gluten in modern diets. It's the cow milk free that we must maintain in our diets, but cutting back on eggs with this ground flax seed substitute is a positive move for both the reduction and the addition.

      Thanks for stopping in!

    • ktrapp profile image

      Kristin Trapp 5 years ago from Illinois

      This recipe looks terrific, and the cake looks so moist and rich, even though I don't necessarily need to go gluten-free myself. As far as I'm concerned anytime chocolate and orange flavors are combined, you are sure to have a hit.

I need to be cow milk free, but am trying to reduce the amount of gluten and eggs we eat, therefore I'm being quite adventurous with experiments. I try to do a lot of research on ingredients before putting a recipe together, and even so there have been some goofs. Maybe they would make a fun hub...

      I think I'll try it. I'm not gluten-free, but I am trying to reduce dairy, maybe eventually go vegan or raw - I love how you experiment!! I wish I had the guts to do that. Maybe I will get there someday... in the meantime, I will enjoy your hubs!

      Lovely! It looks dense, like a teacake. What a wonderful effort. Soon you'll be publishing your own gluten-free recipe collection! Vote up & awesome.
