A very juicy orange cake with gorgeous citrus flavour. I especially like it ice cold, so I keep it in the refrigerator. Don't be put off by the olive oil - baking with olive oil produces fabulous results, is healthier than butter and leaves no trace of 'olive' flavour.

Baked this today. I used Self Raising flour and 1 teaspoon of Baking Powder and left the Baking Soda (bicarbonate of soda) out. Did not use Buttermilk as i felt i had a lot of orange juice as liquid. I added a few drops of Orange Essence. I put everything into the bowl at the same time. Whisked with electric whisk for 2 minutes and transferred it to a 2lb loaf tin lined with a liner. Baked at 170 celcius for 50 mins. Perfect result. Served with chocolate sauce!! - 13 Jan 2018
