  • 1 and 1/2 cups (180g) all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup (200g) granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup (120ml) extra virgin olive oil


  • 1/2 cup (120ml) freshly squeezed orange juice
  • Zest of 1 orange
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup (120ml) buttermilk


Preheat the Oven and Prepare the Cake Pan:

Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a 9-inch (23cm) round cake pan and line the bottom with parchment paper. Set aside.

Make the Cake Batter:

In a mixing bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

In a separate mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, extra virgin olive oil, freshly squeezed orange juice, orange zest, vanilla extract, and buttermilk until well combined.

Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined.

Bake the Cake:

Pour the cake batter into the prepared cake pan, spreading it out evenly.

Bake the cake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

Remove the cake from the oven and let it cool in the pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes.

Remove the cake from the pan and let it cool completely on the wire rack.


For an extra burst of flavor, you can add a tablespoon of orange liqueur to the cake batter.

This cake can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.
