Orange Olive Oil Cake

Olive Oil Orange Cake

We hit the road for a summer road trip today. My brother is getting married so we’re driving from Connecticut to Pittsburgh to see some of my family and then on to Ohio for the wedding.

Olive Oil Orange Cake

This is Alex’s first major American road trip. He’s such a trooper. I need more practice driving so most of the seven hours is going to fall on his shoulders. It’s not as common in the UK to drive for such long distances. You can only drive so far anyway since it’s an island!

I made this cake a while ago and forgot to post it. Alex and I both really wanted cake but I didn’t have any butter, which does not happen very often in our house! It’s a great easy to make cake. The olive oil doesn’t over power the orange flavor and it’s very moist.

I added an orange glaze made with icing sugar and a little orange juice to give it a little something extra.

You can find the recipe over at Italian Food Forever.
