Orange, Lemon & Olive Oil Cake

A glorious Italian inspired dessert that never fails to impress. A simple all-natural zesty cake that actually tastes of oranges. Orange, Lemon & Olive Oil Cake is one of our favorite cakes to make as there are just a handful of ingredients and it has a lovely fresh, orange flavor. It’s easy to assemble, serve, and it freezes well. I must admit, I prefer to use pure olive oil rather than extra-virgin here, because it has a less forceful flavor. But, of course, you can use whichever you like.
