Orange Olive Oil Cake

(by Clara Grecuccio)


2 oranges

1/2 c. extra virgin olive oil

2 c. all-purpose flour

1 1/2 t. baking powder

1/2 t. baking soda

dash of salt

4 large eggs

1 1/2 c. granulated sugar

powdered sugar to garnish

Preheat oven to 350 F. and lightly grease a 9-inch springform pan.

Cut off a small slice of the thicker top and bottom parts of each orange, discard these pieces, and then cut the rest of the oranges into chunks.

Place them in a food processor, and puree until blended but with some texture left.

Add the oil to the oranges, and pulse until blended.

In a large bowl, mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

In another bowl, beat eggs until light and fluffy.

Slowly add sugar to eggs.

Add egg mixture to flour mixture in three parts, alternating with the orange mixture, stirring just until combined.

Pour batter pan and bake for 50 minutes.
