This is an incredibly moist and flavourful cake, with a wonderful taste of orange and a subtle kick of olive oil. This really comes together quickly and without a lot of effort. Yes, it calls for olive oil – but don’t worry, it complements well with oranges!
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for the pan
3/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Juice and zest of 3 oranges
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
Butter (for greasing the bundt pan)
1 cup confectioners’ sugar
3 tablespoons water
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour a 12 cup bundt pan.
Mix together the sugar and eggs in a medium bowl with a hand mixer on medium speed until blended and light.
Drizzle in the olive oil and vanilla and mix until light and smooth. Add the orange juice and zest and mix well.
Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in another medium bowl. Add the flour mixture half at a time to the wet ingredients and mix on low just to incorporate.
Pour into the prepared bundt pan and bake, 35 to 40 minutes. Let the cake cool 15 minutes.
In small bowl, combine the glaze ingredients, adding enough water to reach desired consistency. Drizzle over cake.
This cake can serve about 8-10 people.
