“Wonderful use for blood oranges in the winter. Plus, the cake is moist and requires no butter and very little processed sugar. It's delicious with or without the glaze.” - by Foodtorum
Original recipe yields 8 servings
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a loaf pan with parchment paper; grease and flour the pan.
- Sift flour, baking powder, and salt into a large bowl. Whisk yogurt, agave nectar, eggs, blood orange zest, and vanilla extract together in a separate bowl until smooth. Pour yogurt mixture into flour mixture; stir to combine. Fold olive oil into batter until incorporated. Pour batter into prepared loaf pan.
- Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean, about 50 minutes.
- Whisk 1/4 cup blood orange juice and turbinado sugar together in a saucepan over medium heat; simmer until sugar dissolves, 1 to 2 minutes. Pour over warm cake to absorb juice. Cool cake completely, 30 minutes to 1 hour.
- Whisk confectioners' sugar with 2 tablespoons blood orange juice to make the glaze. Pour over cooled cake.

"This is wonderful! I guess some could say that it's more of a quick bread than an actual cake, but that doesn't change the fact that it tastes great! I did have to make a few changes (simply due to wh..." See moreat ingredients I had on hand): I didn't have plain Greek yogurt, but vanilla flavored, so I used that mixed with a little bit of sour cream. I also didn't have agave nectar, so I used honey, and only a 1/3 of a cup of it due to the fact that the yogurt I used had added sugar in it. Other than that, I did everything as written. It's a dense, moist, tangy, and flavorful way to use up some blood oranges. The only little issue that I had is that when I added the "blood orange syrup" to the warm cake, it fell in. Not a huge deal, but it might be better to let it cool quite a bit before pouring it on."
