directions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F and oil a 9-inch round cake pan.

  • In a large mixing bowl with an electric mixer, beat eggs and salt together until frothy and light (about 2 minutes).
  • Slowly add sugar while continuing to mix (about 2 more minutes).
  • Sift the flour and baking soda together and gradually add to egg mixture. Mix about 1 more minute.
  • In a side bowl, mix olive oil, citrus zest and juice. Using a spoon, stir this into the egg mixture, just folding until all inches.

    The ingredients list 1 tablespoon baking powder. But directions say sift flour and baking soda. Which is it? I suspect it is baking soda because I did it with baking powder and my cake sank in the middle. This cake also has a very dense crumble. Also directions say juice from one orange. Really? Not all oranges are created equal. I used a 1/4 cup. That was probably about right. I do not like guessing amounts.

    I made this cake for my Dad who can't have butter. It is very moist and flavoursome and was enjoyed by all. Wasn't bitter but very orangy... maybe this hides the taste of the olive oil, which could otherwise be a little strong. Will make again.

    This cake had a fantastic texture, but it turned out quite bitter. Maybe my oranges were too big, but we thought it would have been nicer with a bit less zest. Moist and flavourful though! Thanks MarraMamba!

    Made in an 8-inch square pan instead of a round one. Wonderful flavor, wonderful texture, wonderful moistness. Perfecto!
