One of the things I love about winters is eating oranges while sitting in winter sunshine. Well that’s what I did in India, anyways! There is no sunshine in London! I have wanted to bake an orange cake since I had an olive oil and orange cake in Amalfi coast in Italy. The taste was divine!

And I also love the shape of bundt cakes but I am always worried that I will break the edge of the cake when taking it out of the pan.

I decided to be brave!

And using a silocone rather than a metal bundt pan helped! And it was a good decision. Though next time, I am going to try baking the cake in an old metal bundt pan I found in a vintage shop (wish me luck!)

I didn’t break the cake ( and I offer the pictures as proof!) and taste was divine. Cake was delicious, moist and fragrant! The taste was even better a day later.

Tag me on instagram if you bake the cake.

I hope you will enjoy this recipe for orange and olive oil cake.

Happy baking!
