Orange Olive Oil Cake

Orange olive oil cake is a deliciously tender and moist olive oil cake infused with bright orange flavor. This olive oil orange cake has a wonderfully rich and fluffy crumb.

Preheat the oven to 350 F (177 C). Grease and line the bottom of a 9- inch (23 cm) springform or cake pan with parchment paper.

Step 1:  

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt together until well combined.

Step 2:  

In a large mixing bowl fitted with whisk attachment, whipthe sugar and orange zest together until they are the consistency of wet sand.

Step 3:  

On low, whisk the eggs and lemon sugar together until all the eggs are combined. Increase the speed to high and whip for 4-5 minutes. The egg and sugar mixture will be thick and light yellow in color.

Step 4:  

With the mixture on medium speed, stream in the olive oil. Once all the olive oil is streamed in, increase the speed to high for 1 minute. Scrape the sides and bottom of the mixing bowl as needed. On low, whisk in the orange juice and milk, followed by the dry ingredients.

Step 5:  

Evenly pour the orange olive oil cake batter into the prepared pan. For a thin, crackle crust, top with granulated sugar.  Bake the olive oil citrus cake for 40 - 45 minutes.

Step 6:  

Cool the cake in the pan for 15 - 20 minutes. Gently release the side of the springform pan and allow the cake to cool for 5 - 10 more minutes. Transfer the orange cake to a serving plate or serve right from the pan. Top with powdered sugar and orange slices, slice and enjoy!
