Mango orange tea cakes

Teatime is a unique time of the day when we crave for something sweet…. Or something crunchy….. to go with a cup of hot tea flavored with ginger and cardamom…. As the appetizing ginger flavor draws us and as we sip the tea, a bite of a fluffy tea cake is just what is needed to complete the picture. 

Utilizing our Mango orange puree, we came up with an amazingly soft and fluffy cake. It is made with buckwheat flour, which is naturally gluten-free, mildly sweetened, and perfumed with orange essence. To top it all, this is completely vegan. With its gorgeous orange color and every bite of deliciousness, we have a winner. While many of us are working from home these days, this cake will be your go-to snack several times a day….. 🧐 it’s that addictive!
