Have you ever had an olive oil cake?! This was my first one and it’s glorious. It has a delicate crumb texture and is perfectly moist. And a perfect way to use this winter citrus everywhere! Can’t find blood oranges? Regular oranges will work just fine.
Look at that coconut sugar topping! And the oranges are slices very thin, so eating the rind actually gives the perfect burst of citrus with the rich, spiced cake.
