I was looking for a good recipe to use my lovely bag of blood oranges with and this caught my attention- mainly because I want cake yet still be on my diet. :D
The changes I made was the vegetable oil to olive oil, white vinegar to rice wine vinegar (only because it is what I had on hand), vanilla to almond extract (which is amazing and added a sweet fruity note) and the orange juice to freshly squeezed blood orange juice.
It came out beautifully. I pretty much burned myself trying to get a taste. I do advise to use the almond extract over vanilla- it really lifts the taste. I find vanilla dull and overly used. Thank you and your cousin for this lovely recipe.

This cake was surprisingly good for so few ingredients; also took less than 5 minutes to throw together. We ate it warm with vanilla ice cream. I'll definitely make this again. Thanks!
