Coconut Orange and Cranberry cake

Combination of coconut and Orange is a match made in heaven! The cake is really moist with great texture and absolutely flavorful. The sweetness of the cake is balanced with tanginess from the dried cranberries. A very healthy cake made with combination of sorghum flour, amaranth flour and whole wheat flour. The cake looks bright and beautiful too!
