An intoxicating combination of preserved oranges and olive oil intensifies the flavors of this cake. The cake is moist and dripping with fresh flavors and we could not but fall in love with this one.
This particular recipe had been on my to-do list for a long time, and happy as I am to have finally given it a try, I also regret not having tried this earlier; this is a keeper. The cake tastes fabulous just by itself, gets better as it matures for a couple of days and tastes even better with some cold ice cream or whipped cream and preserved orange slices on the side. We have had it every way, and delighted a few friends of ours too. This is the cake to have by your coffee cup, or if you would want a slice after your meal, make it elegant with some cream and compote.
