I’m obsessed with the smell and flavor of this cake it does give off Vasilopita cake vibes but I was so thrilled when the oats and maple syrup worked in this recipe to make it healthier for you. The smell though is INSANE!

You can use regular all purpose flour here or gluten free flour instead of the oats. You can also use granular sugar instead of the maple syrup. The flavor will all taste amazing and you will have guests going for seconds for sure. There is absolutely no bitterness from the orange peel whatsoever!

The beauty of the recipe is that any fruit can be subbed in like a large lemon, 2 limes or a pear. I cannot wait to try more flavor for this simple to make recipe. My only recommendation is to stick to ORGANIC fruits since your are using and eating the peels.
