May 3, 2024

This is the perfect spring dessert that will make anyone who tries it VERY happy (just saying….). Do with this information as you wish…

** mixer is not required but recommended** 

Prep Time:10 minutes

Cook Time:20 minutes

Total Time:30 minutes

Ingredients for the cake batter:
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 zest from 2 small oranges or 1 big one
  • 1/2 olive oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1/4 whole milk or plant based
  • 1/4 sour cream or yogurt
  • 1/2 tablespoon orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 2 cups four
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
Ingredients for the olive oil crumble:
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 3 tablespoon sugar
  • 2-5 tablespoon of olive oil (add as needed)


Step 1

Preheat your oven to 350F(176C)

Step 2

In a big bowl, add your sugar and zest your orange. Once combined, mix with your hands to release all the oils from the zest into the sugar and put a side.

Step 3

In a small bowl: Let's make the crumble. 

Add your flour, sugar and slowly add your oil. One tablespoon at the time. Until you get a crumble for your liking.


Set aside.

Step 4

Back to our main bowl, add your oil and eggs and start mixing. Either using the mixer or a whisk. 

Step 5

Add your milk, sour cream and vanilla and mix until combined. 

Step 7

Dry ingredients: Add your flour, baking powder (I know I said baking soda in my tiktok but oops) and your salt. Mix until JUST combined. 

Step 8

Using either cupcake cups or you can diy them like I did using parchment paper, scoop your batter and add it in to your muffin pan.

If you don't have cupcakes cups or parchment paper, feel free to just oil your muffin pan!

Step 9

Add your crumble on top on your scooped batter. 

Step 10

Transfer into the oven and bake for about 20 ish minutes. Until fully baked inside.

Step 11

Drizzle some olive oil on top and enjoy with a side of vanilla ice cream or just as is!
