I think it's true when they say that girls tend to have a separate stomach for desserts. In my humble opinion, no matter if you are a man or a woman, almost everyone I have ever met definitely has a fondness for desserts - no matter how full they are! My dessert of choice is - of course - any dessert that has chocolate in it. However, there comes a time when even I have to admit to myself that chocolate-y desserts can sometimes be too overly rich and sweet. During times like those, I would be stuck in a limbo; contemplating about whether or not I should eat that chocolate cake and feel guilty afterward or eat a piece of fruit that I'm honestly not that enthusiastic about.
I have thought about making an olive oil cake before. But it seemed a little bit too plain for my taste. However, with the addition of the blood orange olive oil, the zest, AND the orange segments, however, these extra ingredients definitely bring the cake to a whole other level! The citrus-y components of these ingredients combined with the fruity olive oil create such a lovely cake! If you want to impress your friends, loved ones, or even people at your workplace party, then I highly-recommend you to make this little beauty!
This recipe is an adaption from Gourmet Blend's version of Blood Orange Olive Oil Cake.
