Vegan Orange Cranberry Cake

When life gives you oranges, please do me a favor and bake this cake. You will thank me later. Just kidding:-) When our dear friend S generously shared a few slices of this cake with us last week, I couldn’t believe it didn’t have any butter. Its super moist and yummy and goes well with tea or with vanilla ice cream. S was nice enough to share the recipe which is originally from here. I made a few changes, added cranberries and orange zest and substituted agave nectar for sugar. The result was equally good. A perfect way to welcome fall.
