Coconut Orange and Cranberry cake

Combination of coconut and Orange is a match made in heaven! The cake is really moist with great texture and absolutely flavorful. The sweetness of the cake is balanced with tanginess from the dried cranberries. A very healthy cake made with combination of sorghum flour, amaranth flour and whole wheat flour. The cake looks bright and beautiful too!

    1. Replace eggs with apple sauce or banana puree.. You can google the exact quantity required for an egg as I have not tried so I can’t give much information. Also the taste of the cake will change, you’ve to experiment and see.
