- 2 1/4 cups flour
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1 tbsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 tsp cardamom
- 1 1/2 cups sugar
- 1/2 cup plain yogurt
- 1/2 cup milk
- 3 eggs
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup olive oil
- 3 tbsp blood orange zest
Blood Orange Glaze
- 2 tbsp blood orange juice
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 1 tbsp butter, melted
- Start by pre-heating the oven 350 F. Grease a large bundt with nonstick spray. Next, sprinkle some flour in the pan and shake it so all the sides are covered. This will ensure the bundt doesn’t stick.
- Next, mix together all your dry ingredients. In a medium bowl whisk together your flour, baking soda, baking powder, cardamom, and salt. Set aside.
- In a large bowl mix together your eggs, sugar, and vanilla. Beat for about 3 minutes until light, fluffy, and pale.
- Next, alternately beat in your dry ingredients in thirds along with the yogurt and milk. Start by adding flour, mix, add milk, mix, yogurt, mix… continue alternately adding the ingredients until fully mixed.
- Next, gently fold the blood orange zest into the batter. Don’t over mix.
- After the zest is evenly incorporated pour the batter into the bundt pan and bake for 45-50 minutes. Once baked, the top will be golden and a toothpick/wooden skewer will come out clean.
- Let the cake cool for 10 minutes. While it’s cooling, let’s make the glaze.
- In a small bowl whisk together all your glaze ingredients until light pink and somewhat thick. If your glaze is too thick, you can add more juice. If it’s too thin, add more powdered sugar.
- Use a spoon or pourable glass and drizzle the glaze over the top of the bundt.
Ta-da! Mmmm! 😋
