  • 1 cup  tapioca flour
  • 1 cup sorghum flour
  • 8 tablespoon orange juice
  • 3/4 cup  yogurt
  • 2 teaspoon  aluminum free baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon  vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon  orange zest
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 2 cups  2 cups cranberries, frozen or fresh
  • 3 tablespoon  ground flax seed
  • 2/4 cup sugar

Struesel Topping

  • 2 tablespoon  sorghum flour
  • 1 tablespoon rolled oatmeal
  • 1 tablespoon tapioca flour
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoon  tub Earth Balance
  • Additional Earth Balance to grease the pan &sprinkle with tapioca flour to prevent cake from sticking
  •  Confectioners sugar & water (glaze or sprinkle just sugar on top, I made a little glaze with orange zest & orange juice to lightly glaze the top)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare spring form pan for thecake. In a small bowl make streusel by adding flour, sugar and tub margarineand mixing it until it becomes crumbly.  In a large mixing bowl: addflours, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, flax meal, orange zest and saltwell. In a separate smaller bowl, add yogurt, orange juice and vanilla and stirwell. Add the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir well. Addcranberries and walnuts. Stir well again. Add to spring form pan and add thestreusel. Bake cake for 50 minutes. Check the middle with a toothpick to makesure that it comes out clean. Allow it to cool and then open the spring so youcan carefully take the pan off the sides. Leave the bottom of the pan alone andplace it on a decorative plate. Garnish with a few fresh or thawed frozencranberries if desired. As you can see below, I also added a dollop of yogurtto my piece. Some of you may even want to add a little whipped cream!
