Blood Orange Olive Oil Cake Recipe

This recipe focuses on the blood orange flavor that comes from the blood orange olive oil vs. an actual blood orange itself.

You are free to add real blood oranges if you are looking for extra sweetness (our Blood Orange Olive Oil is made with real blood oranges, not artificial or natural flavors, so we didn’t need to double down).

To Substitute – replace the blood orange olive oil with more Arbequina Olive Oil and add 2 blood oranges.

We personally think it’s better with the flavored olive oil, so we hope you enjoy!
