True Orange is a new product from the makes of True Lemon and True Lime. The “True” products are little packets of crystallized fruit flavoring that have zero calories, zero carbs and no artificial sweetening. You can use them for baking/cooking, or you can add a packet to your bottled water or tea. They store well in my pantry, and taste as close to the real thing as any other product I’ve ever come across.

Ener-G Egg Replacer mimics what eggs do in recipes, yet contains no eggs. It’s main ingredients are potato starch and tapioca starch flour. It replaces egg whites as well as egg yolks in baking, and one 16 ounce box, which sells for under $7.00, is equal to 100 eggs. For each egg called for in a recipe, you just dissolve 1 1/2 teaspoons of Ener-G Egg Replacer in 2 tablespoons of warm water, and add it to your recipe. How easy is that? Ener-G Egg Replacer is another product that has become a staple in my pantry.
Both of these products work very well together in this recipe. This cake turned out moist and delicious, and the orange and chocolate flavor combination has always been a favorite of mine.
