Ingredients to make Olive Oil Citrus Cake with Pomegranate Glaze

  • Cake - 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup almond meal
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 spoon (scant) salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup minus 1 tablespoon caster sugar
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup fresh orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons zest or orange candied peels chopped fine
  • pomegranate glaze- 1 pomegranate
  • 1/2 cup icing sugar

How to make Olive Oil Citrus Cake with Pomegranate Glaze

  1. Whisk together flour, almond meal, baking powder and salt.
  2. In a large bowl whisk eggs and sugar till pale, creamy and fluffy
  3. Add olive oil, orange juice and vanilla extract. Whisk until uniform and smooth
  4. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Grease the sides and line the bottom of one 8 inch round baking tin.
  5. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients. Mix till well incorporated. Stir in zest or peels.
  6. Pour into the baking tin. Bake for 25 - 30 minutes or until the top turns a beautiful golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean.
  7. Remove from the oven. Remove from the pan after 10 minutes. Cool on the wire rack.
  8. To prepare pomegranate glaze, remove seeds from the pomegranate. Take 1/2 cup seeds, take them in a strainer. Crush with fingers or with the back of a spoon. Collect juice in a bowl.
  9. Add 1 tablespoon juice to the icing sugar and keep stirring. Add more till you get a thick glaze.
  10. Keep cake on a plate. Pour glaze in the centre so that it runs down the sides. Take a handful of pomegranate gems(seeds) and place them in the centre.
  11. Slice and serve.

My Tip:

Use any citrus of your choice for the cake. You may use oranges, kinnow or any local variety. I used Malta. It grows in the hills and has a strong flavour.
