Ingredients

  • 3 oranges
  • 1/4 cup cranberry juice
  • 1/2 cup Dried Cranberries
  • 1/2 cup Golden Raisins
  • 1 cup Pitted Dates, chopped smaller
  • 1 cup Dried Pineapple, chopped smaller
  • 1 cup chopped Pecans
  • 2 tablespoons Flax Seed Meal and 6 tablespoons water
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1 tablespoon Maple Syrup
  • 2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Baking Soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon Ground Nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • For the Glaze:
  • 1/2 cup apple jelly

Instructions

  • What a beautiful bunch of ingredients.
  • I used the smaller Bundt Pan (it measures 6 cups) because I wanted a taller cake. Mine came from Target and there are many colors to choose from. The cake turned out beautiful and you can slice thinner slices.
  • You can certainly use any bundt pan that you have – A larger size will turn out lower height but it will still be really pretty.
  • Oil the bundt pan – I used coconut oil.
  • Mix the flax seed meal and water together and set aside so that it can gel. It only takes a few minutes.
  • Squeeze all of the juice from the oranges to get close to 1/2 cup of juice. It can be a bit under 1/2 cup but you need more than 1/4 cup.
  • In a medium bowl add the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. Mix together.
  • In a large bowl add the orange juice, cranberry juice, cranberries, dates, raisins, pineapple, pecans, vanilla extract, maple syrup and the thickened flax seed meal mixture.
  • Mix all together.
  • Add the flour mixture to the fruit mixture and blend well.
  • Pour into the prepared bundt pan and flatten it down, as well as you can, on the top.
  • Bake at 325 degrees for 45 minutes.
  • Cool in the pan on a wire rack for about 30 minutes.
  • Remove from the pan and let cool completely.
  • Melt the apple jelly in the microwave and drizzle over the top of the cake.
