Orange Olive Oil Cake
This Orange Olive Oil Cake is so easy to make in one bowl and bake in the oven in one pan. Loaded with delicious orange flavor that is not overpowering. Sweet, chewy and flavorful.
- 1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 large eggs
- ¾ cup sugar
- ⅓ cup olive oil
- 1 teaspoon orange extract (or vanilla extract)
- zest and juice of 1 orange
- powdered sugar, for dusting
Preheat the oven 350 degrees F. and lightly spray an 8-inch round cake pan with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.
In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and set aside.
Using a stand or hand mixer in a medium bowl cream together the eggs and sugar until they are well blended and thick. Add the olive oil and vanilla and beat until the batter is smooth.
Mix in the orange juice and zest. Reduce the speed of the mixer to low and add half of the flour mixture and blend just until incorporated and then add the rest of the flour mixture.
Once fully combined, turn off the mixer and pour the cake batter into the prepared cake pan and bake 25 to 30 minutes, until a cake tester comes out clean.
When the cake is finished baking allow the cake to cool completely in the pan and when ready to serve to turn the cake onto a platter and dust the top with sifted powdered sugar.
