Ingredients

  • 6

    medium oranges

  • 2 1/4

    cups bread flour

  • 1

    tablespoon baking soda

  • 4

    large eggs

  • 1/2

    teaspoon salt

  • 1

    cup sugar

  • 1/2

    cup extra-virgin olive oil

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350° F. Oil a 9-inch round cake pan. Remove the zest from the oranges and juice one of them. Set fruit aside for another use. Sift the flour and baking soda together onto a piece of waxed paper. In a large mixing bowl, beat the eggs and salt together with an electric mixer until frothy and light, about 2 minutes. Slowly add the sugar, continuing to mix 2 minutes longer. Add the flour and baking soda gradually to the egg mixture, then mix 1 more minute. In another bowl, combine the olive oil, orange zest, and juice. Using a spoon, stir it into the egg mixture, folding just until combined. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake 50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean. Invert onto a wire rack. Cool to room temperature, cut into wedges, and serve with gelato and a drizzle of new oil or your favorite sweetened fruit sauce.
