This is an incredibly moist and delicious orange cake. It is Ina Garten's (aka Barefoot Contessa) "Orange Pound Cake", but I did not find it dense or heavy the way I usually think of pound cakes. Her recipe was perfect. The only modification I made was to use a mix of tangerines (more tangy!) and oranges that I had on hand. I also recommend the final icing/glaze as optional. Be sure to read the recipe carefully as some of the measures (orange juice, sugar) are divided into different steps.

I've taken advantage of my maternity leave to nest, and have recently returned to baking - something that I haven't had time for in a while. Last night, while surfing the web, a tasty treat on Gilt Food caught my eye and suddenly I had a craving for olive oil cake! I was just one click away from buying it, when I thought, why not bake it myself? I found this recipe online, and we had all the ingredients in our pantry.
