“I am beginning to learn that it is the sweet, simple things of life which are the real ones after all.”
– Laura Ingalls Wilder
This cake will make you smile and will bring a ray of sunshine to your kitchen. It’s a lovely and moist cake and its beauty lies in its simplicity and flavour combination. Blood oranges with their complex sweetness and a slight bitter after taste and olive oil for a wondefully tender crumb and depth of flavour. Delicious! The best part is that it is super easy to make, and will take you less than 90 minutes from start to finish!
Blood oranges are definitely worth hunting for during their relatively short season. I love how innocent and inconspicuous they look from the outside. However, the moment you bite into them they reveal their sensual, blood-like red colour. If you can’t get hold of blood oranges, regular medium size oranges could be used, too. Also, since you’ll be eating the whole fruit and its zest, try to get the organic ones if possible.
