I can just say that I will definitely bake this cake again and again, it´s fresh and super moist, easy to do and the white chocolate glaze gives a certain touch to the orange flavour. I can see it easily done with lemons as well and a simple lemon glaze or even with a mascarpone frosting.
I added some little vanilla bean paste to the cake mixture, you know me by now….it had to be!
For the cake
- 5 large eggs
- 300g caster sugar
- Zest and juice of 3 blood oranges (approx. 150ml)
- 150g light olive oil
- 280g self-raising flour
- 1/2 tsp of vanilla bean paste or vanilla flavour
- 1 tbsp of butter, melted for greasing the tin
- 1 tbsp of flour, to dust the tin (plain or self raising is fine)
For the glaze
- 140g white chocolate, roughly chopped
- zest 1 blood orange, plus juice of 1½ (about 75ml juice)
- Pre-heat the oven to 170 ºC. Grease and dust the bundt cake tin
- Whisk the eggs with the sugar and orange zest until pale and fluffy
- Add the orange juice and the olive oil and carry on whisking until combined
- Fold in the flour until just incorporated and be careful to not overmix.
- Pour the batter into the prepared tin, place on a baking tray and bake for 30-40 minutes until risen and golden. A skewer inserted into the cake should come out clean.
- Allow to cool in the tin for 10 minutes, before carefully turning it out onto a wire rack to finish cooling.
- Make the glaze by melting the chocolate and adding the orange juice until combined. Leave it to cool.
- Refrigerate the glaze until it thickens, but is still pourable. When it is ready, drizzle the glaze over the cake so that it drips down the sides.
I hope you all had a lovely Easter
