How to make orange-olive oil cake | Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (176-180 degrees Celsius). Grease a 23,5 x 12,7 cm (9 x 5 inches) loaf pan loaf pan or 23 cm (9 inches) cake round pan.
  2. In a large bowl, add your wet ingredients: eggs, honey, sugar, olive oil, yogurt, orange zest and orange juice, orange blossom water, vanilla. Mix everything very well until the batter is smooth and lump-free.
  3. In another bowl add almond flour, all-purpose flour, baking soda, salt and baking powder, cinnamon. Mix everything.
  4. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until fully incorporated and the batter is lump-free. Make sure to not over mix the batter.
  5. At the bottom of the pan sprinkle some brown sugar and lay very thin orange slices. They must be thin!
  6. Pour batter into the prepared greased pan. Gently spread the batter evenly.
  7. Place the cake pan on the middle rack in the oven and bake for 30-34 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. I covered the cake with aluminum foil for 20 minutes, then removed the aluminum foil and baked for an additional 15 minutes.
  8. Allow it to cool for at least 5 -7 minutes before inverting the cake onto a wire rack to finish cooling.
  9. Dust powdered sugar all over the top of the cake, if desired. Bon appétit!


This Orange Olive Oil cake will keep for 3-4 days in an airtight container in the fridge.
