oranges 'n' honey cake

 I am always excited when I find a dessert recipe that tastes absolutely delicious and treat-like, but doesn't make us feel super yucky after we indulge a bit. 
(ie: no white flour or sugar involved)
This cake turned out super moist and  not a bit lacking in flavor or yum factor, so I thought I'd share.
I adapted from this recipe from the hillbilly housewife (love that name :)

  • Preheat to 350* Bake 25-30 min

  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 3/4 cup honey
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup yogurt
  • 1/2 cup orange juice (i forgot to measure, just used the juice and quite a bit of the pulp of 1 orange)
  • the grated rind of one orange
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure almond extract 
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt

Mix wet ingredients, add dry, and mix well.
