From poppytalk blog. So whip out your bundt pan and bake up a sunny cake made with yogurt, olive oil and Seville oranges! If you don't have a ridged round pan, just use a regular old loaf pan and keep a careful eye on things about 10 minutes before the end of the bake time. Don't have the bitter Seville oranges? Use lemons, limes, or grapefruit instead.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F Butter and flour your bundt pan and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, and salt.
  3. In another bowl, combine the sugar and the orange zest together. Blend well so that the oils in the zest release into the sugar and becomes fragrant. Beat the eggs into the sugar until well combined and stir in the yogurt, orange juice, vanilla and olive oil. Add in flour mixture and stir until everything is all mixed.
  4. Pour batter into the bundt pan, smoothing the tops with a spatula. Bake for 30-40 minutes or until the tops are golden and a cake tester inserted in the middle comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before inverting onto a wire rack.
  5. While cake is cooling, mix together the sugar and the orange juice in a small saucepan until the sugar melts. Using a pastry brush, generously brush the orange syrup over the cake. Poke the cake a few times with a skewer if need be to help soak in the syrup, because the wetter this cake gets with the orange syrup the better it will be.
