Blood Orange Olive Oil Cake

By Fitnspicy @fitnspicy

I am not much of a dessert person but sometimes I really want something sweet! But not too sweet and sugary. I was restocking our olive oil and came across and idea for an olive oil cake. I gave it my spin and added blood orange zest, juice and even blood orange olive oil. This was seriously delicious!! It only lasted about 3 days and it was just Scott and I.

You could change up the flavors with difference oils and citrus fruits but the blood orange was so good.

And something that would go really well with this cake? A great big mug of tea. I am participating in Mug O’Comfort swap, can’t wait to send out a cute mug filled with coffee or tea and receive a new one to try. I love tasting new tea.
