Sunburnt Orange Olive Oil Cake


2 oranges

1 cup honey

1 cup raw coconut sugar

2 ½ cups flour

2 tsp. baking powder

1 tsp. baking soda

1 tsp. vanilla extract

4 eggs

6 tbsp. Batistini Extra Virgin Olive Oil

¼ cup of fresh orange juice

¼ cup of raw coconut sugar


  1. Cut the bottom and top of the 2 oranges, and slice into quarters. Boil in 6 cups of water with the orange rims facing down, over medium high heat. Boil for about 10 minutes.
  2. Mix together the 1 cup of raw coconut sugar and 1 cup of honey in a small bowl. Add 1 cup of that mixture to the saucepan with the oranges. Add 4 cups of water back into the saucepan, as well. Boil until the rims of the oranges are soft, about 20 minutes.
  3. In a medium sized bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, and baking soda. Remove the oranges from the saucepan and allow cooling. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  4. Once cooled, blend the oranges in a food processor. In a mixing bowl, mix together the flour mixture, orange puree, eggs, and vanilla.
  5. Add olive oil. Mix until batter is completely smooth with no bumps.
  6. Grease pan with olive oil and dust with flour. Pour batter into 10” pan and bake 45-50 minutes. (We covered our with Aluminum foil for the first 15 minutes.) Allow cooling
