Delicious, this is the best cake I have made this year! Thankyou!

Jacqueline says:

Victoria – We’re so happy you liked it! Our chefs are working on some more delicious fall recipes for the coming weeks, so keep an eye out 🙂

Sue says:

This looks really interesting. I want to try it. I’ve never seen what you do with the orange before. What is left after pressing through the strainer? Does the skin and pith go through?

Jacqueline says:

Hi Sue – no, not exactly. You’ll get all the juice, plus pulp and a bit of pith to bulk things up (but if some skin sneaks in there, it’s not the end of the world). If you want to save time, feel free to skip the boiling and just juice the orange.

lyn Floyd says:

Can I substitute Truvia for sugar?

Jacqueline says:

Hi lyn! Not sure – we’ve never baked with Truvia before. However, if you’re looking for a substitute for sugar, we would recommend honey or pure maple syrup.

Renee Fender says:

Is almond meal and almond flour the same thing?

Jacqueline says:

Good question, Renee! They’re similar, but not exactly the same. Almond flour is made with blanched almonds (so no flecks of skin) and is very fine. However, almond meal is a bit coarser. We haven’t tried this recipe with almond flour, but if you do please let us know how it tastes!!

Bridge' says:

It looks delicious!! I am going to try this recipe this weekend. Question where can I find the almond meal? Do I need to go to a Whole Foods or Sprouts?

Jacqueline says:

You can definitely find almond meal at health food stores like Whole Foods, but also at most other grocery stores (it’s getting increasingly popular). It’s even at Target and Walmart!

We would LOVE to see your beautiful cake once it’s made. Show us by tagging #HelloFreshPics!

Trudy says:

This looks delicious! Can you sub one cup of honey or maple syrup for the one cup of sugar? Do the ratios of other ingredients change if you add a liquid sweetner rather than a granular? Thanks for your help! Trudy

Jacqueline says:

Trudy – because honey is sweeter than sugar, we recommend using only 3/4 cup. Also, add another 1/2 teaspoon baking powder and reduce the oven temperature to 350 rather than 375. Let us know how it turns out!!

Renee Fender says:

I made this just now. I used almond flour since I had it on hand and I also used Pyure which is a Stevia blend. The flavor was nice but I would recommend a LARGE orange. If you have doubts that your orange is large enough, it probably isn’t. Also, my oven apparently cooks fast because I was so sad that mine was very dry. Next time I will check it at 35 minutes and spot check from there. I am willing to give it another try!

Jacqueline says:

Thank you for your feedback, Renee! Definitely give it another try and check after 35 minutes. You can insert a toothpick or a knife, and if it comes out clean, you’re good to go.

Ashley says:

I made this last night! How come the egg and almond meal separated? It’s 2 separate layers in my cake! Very egg-y, might try more almond meal next time.

Jacqueline says:

Ashley – so weird! Yes, we would recommend trying more almond meal next time. Let us know how it goes!

I LOVE beets! Always have. I didn’t know you could eat them raw ! Hmm. another veggie dip veggie possibility. Can’t wait to try the beet chips, and tart !

Jacqueline says:

Yvonne – The beet chips and tart are two GREAT choices. Let us know how they turn out!

Susan says:

I strongly dislike beets, hate them even. Please never send me any beets or recipes that include beets. Just about the only food I cannot tolerate.

Jordan Schultz says:

Jordan here, from the HelloFresh community team. Sorry to hear that, Susan! There’s no way to automatically set a preference to avoid a specific ingredient, I’m afraid. However, you can always see an ingredient list before you make meal choice.

Ilene says:

Hello, love all these ideas but especially the chips! I am not a fan of beets since childhood (my Mother served them pickled, ick!) but am willing to try again. So for the chips, are they raw when you put them on the cookie sheet? Or do you boil/roast them first as you described? Please advise, I’m buying some beets today!! Thanks!

Jacqueline says:

Hi Ilene – when you’re making chips, the beets should be raw! Then they’ll get nice and crisp in the oven 🙂

Nancy says:

This is a great article . Very thoughtful. Very Brilliant .

David says:

Beets are ALSO GREAT FOR LOWERING BLOOD PRESSURE! Just thought I’d add that 2 cents…

Jordan Schultz says:

They are indeed! Thanks for sharing, David.

This looks delicious. However, in the ingredients list the recipe calls for fresh lemon juice and in the video it’s lemon-like soda. Can either be used or which one is it?
