DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350°F and oil a 9-inch round cake pan.
  • Remove zest from all oranges and juice from one. Set fruit aside for another use.
  • 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.
  • Pour batter into prepared pan and place in oven and bake 50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in center of cake comes out clean.
  • Cool to room temperature, cut into wedges and serve.
