6-8 people


  • 1-1/2 cups + 1 Tablespoon freshly squeezed orange juice (about 4-5 large navel oranges)
  • 1 Tablespoon finely grated orange zest
  • 3-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1-3/4 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 5 large eggs
  • 3 cups granulated sugar
  • 1-1/2 cups + 1 Tablespoon Whole Fruit Blood Orange Fused Olive Oil
  • 1/2 up dried cranberries
  • 1 cup confectioner's sugar


  • Position a rack in the middle of the oven, remove any racks about and turn the heat to 350 degrees.
  • Coat a 12-cup Bundt or tube pan with 1 Tablespoon Blood Orange Olive Oil and set aside.
  • Finely grate the zest of 2 oranges, then squeeze 4 of them. You should have 1-1/2 cups and 1 reserved Tablespoon of orange juice; if not, squeeze the 5th orange. Set aside.
  • Whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl and set aside.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, or with a hand-held mixer in a large bowl, beat the egs on medium-high speed until well combined, about 1 minute. Slowly pour in the granulated sugar and continue beating until thick and pale yellow, about 3 minutes. On low speed, alternate adding the flour mixture and Blood Orange Olive Oil, starting and ending with the flour, and beat until just a few wisps of flour remain. Pour in the orange juice, zest and dried cranberries and whirl for a few seconds to bring the batter together.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake until a cake tester comes out with a few moist crumbs clinging to it, about 1-1/4 hours. If the top is browning too much as the cake bakes, cover lightly with foil. Transfer to a wire rack and cool for 15 minutes and then turn the cake out on to a rack over a sheet pan. Mix together 1 Tablespoon reserved orange juice with confectioner's sugar to form a glaze. Pour slowly and evenly over the warm cake. Serve at room temperature.
