Orange Creamsicle Cake Recipe (Vegan)

This is one of my favorite desserts.  Sam wants this cake for her birthday this year - she says it's better than chocolate cake!  The orange juice and vanilla really work well together adding lots of "orange creamsicle" flavor to this super moist cake. The best part is, no frosting required, however, chocolate or vanilla frosting would be fabulous with this.

Orange Creamsicle Cake Recipe

2 cups unbleached flour
1 cup sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup pulp-free 100% orange juice
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1-1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Sugar in the Raw if  not using frosting

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Mix together dry ingredients. Add wet ingredients and mix together thoroughly, but don't over mix. Spray an 8x8 square or 11x7 rectangular baking pan with non-stick cooking spray. Pour the batter into the pan and top it with a sprinkling of Sugar in the Raw (as much or little as you like) if you don't want to frost it. Bake the cake for 25 to 30 minutes. When the time is up, insert a toothpick into the middle of the cake to make sure it's done. 

To make cupcakes instead, bake for 16 minutes.  Makes 18 cupcakes.

If using rice flour to make this cake use the following instead of the unbleached flour above:
1-1/4 cups brown rice flour
3/4 cup white rice flour
2 tbsp binder (potato starch, tapioca flour, arrowroot powder, etc.)
Plus 1/4 cup more orange juice
