Orange Olive Oil Cake
with Orange-Cranberry Compote ingredients
Makes 16 servings
For cake:
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1/2 tsp each baking powder, baking soda and salt
3 large eggs
2 Tbsp grated orange zest
1 cup plus 2 Tbsp olive oil (not extra-virgin)
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
2/3 cup orange-flavor or regular sweetened dried cranberries, finely chopped

For compote:
8 navel oranges
2/3 cup sweetened dried cranberries
1/4 cup granulated sugar

For garnish:
Confectioners’ sugar
Mint leaves


Preheat oven to 350ºF. Coat two 8- or 9-inch x 2-inch round baking pans with nonstick spray. Line bottoms with parchment paper or wax paper cut to fit. Spray paper, then coat pans with flour.

In a medium bowl, whisk flour, 1 1/2 cups of the sugar, the baking powder, baking soda and salt until blended.

In a large bowl, whisk eggs and orange zest until blended. Whisk in remaining 1 cup sugar; whisk until mixture lightens, about 1 minute.

Whisk in oil, then buttermilk, until blended. Gradually whisk flour mixture into egg mixture until blended. Stir in cranberries.

Distribute evenly between the prepared pans. Bake 40 to 45 minutes until a wooden pick inserted in centers comes out clean.

Let cool in pans on wire rack 10 minutes. Remove from pans to cool completely.

Cut peel and white pith from oranges; cut between membranes into sections (video). Put sections into a bowl; squeeze juice from the membranes into bowl.

Add dried cranberries and sugar; stir. Let stand 10 minutes, stirring occasionally until sugar dissolves.
