So what makes this a snack cake? The fact that it is mildly sweetened and there is no frosting. I guess the fruit also helps. It really is perfect for snacking and can be enjoyed straight from the fridge or warmed up. It’s healthy enough to be enjoyed for breakfast and even easy enough to make in the morning.Paleo Cranberry Orange Snack Cake

This cake comes together so fast. Everything is mixed in one bowl, scooped into the pan, topped with the cranberries and baked.  You can go from mixing to eating in under 40 minutes.Paleo Cranberry Orange Snack Cake

I cut this cake into 9 pieces, but they are kind of small and I actually think it would be better to serve in 6 pieces. You could always double the recipe in a 13×9 if you have a larger group to serve.Paleo Cranberry Orange Snack Cake

The cranberries soften and are sweet, yet tart. The cake is moist and fluffy and the small sprinkle of coconut sugar on top adds just a touch of sweetness that balances with the cranberries.Little Girl Eating Cake

Here’s a little piece of real life. I took pictures at 9am and my daughter wanted some cake. She was still in her jammies, but of course I let her have some.Paleo Cranberry Orange Snack Cake

I made this twice- the first time with no orange zest and juice and the second time including them and wow, it really makes a difference. The orange flavor isn’t strong, but it compliments the cranberries perfectly and adds a little sweetness. It really takes this cake from okay to super delicious!
