Easy, Delicious Orange and Extra Virgin Olive Oil Cake

This cake is light and fluffy and a definite crowd pleaser.

Freshly squeezed orange juice makes it extra delicious, but if you’re in a hurry you can substitute with freshly-squeezed-from-the-juice-factory-to-your-fridge. However, the orange rind has to be the real deal!



INGREDIENTS

3 cups self rising flour

¾ cup sugar

1 ¼ PJ Kabos Chef’s Selection Extra Virgin Olive Oil

4 eggs

Rind of 1 orange

1 ¼ cups orange juice

6. Butter and flour cake tins. Pour in the batter.

7. Cook in preheated oven for approx 1 hour or until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Tip: This cake is even better fresh and steaming from the oven. Bonus, no cooling off time!
