Cranberry-Orange Olive Oil Cake

Ingredients

1 1/2 cups + 1 Tbs.fresh squeezed orange juice
1 Tbs. 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 Tbs. Olivastro Blood Orange EVOO
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1 cup confectioners sugar

Preparation

Position a rack in the middle of the oven, remove any racks above, heat to 350°F. Coat a 12-cup bundt or tube pan with 1 tbs. blood orange extra virgin 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 of juice. 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 eggs 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 extra virgin 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 confectioners sugar to form a glaze. Pour slowly and evenly over the warm cake.
