We're featuring everything Italian this month!
A one bowl, not very sweet cake. I used "Marchesi di San Giulano Orange Slices in Syrup". They are Sicilian oranges that have been slightly candied. Really amazing flavor and great for cheese boards too! You could drizzle some of the syrup on top of the finished cake if you'd like it to be sweeter. I included the video and finished cake below. Enjoy!
1 1/4 cup flour
2/3 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup mild or grassy olive oil
1/2 cup sour cream or greek yogurt
2 large eggs
3 Tablespoons lemon juice
9 slices of candied oranges in syrup (about 1/2 of a jar if buying at Boulevard Market)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Grease a 9 inch cake pan and then lay orange slices out evenly.
In a large mixing bowl combine all dry ingredients. Add wet ingredients. Stir until well combined. Pour evenly over orange slices being careful to not dislodge your pattern.
Bake 30-35 minutes until golden brown. Allow to cool about 5 minutes and then turn out onto a cake plate or wooden board. I garnished with fresh herbs and drizzled a bit of remaining syrup over cake slices.
