• 2 ¼ c flour (I use combo of regular and white whole wheat)
  • 1 ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • ¾ extra virgin olive oil. I have also used a buttery flavored (vegan) EVOO from the olive oil store.
  • 1 ½ c sugar
  • 2 Tbs. Orange Juice
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 3 eggs
  • 2/3 c milk (I have used coconut milk to make it pareve)
  • I also added a little cinnamon and some sliced almonds


  1. Oven-325 degrees
  2. Combine flour, salt and baking powder;
  3. Place olive oil in a large bowl. With an electric mixer, slowly beat in sugar, juice, and vanilla;
  4. Add eggs, beating well after each one. Add milk and beat for 2 min.
  5. Gradually mix in the dry ingredients.
  6. Pour batter into the loaf pan. I found that you can make the 9X5 an a mini one from the batter.
  7. Bake for 1-1 ½ hrs., until cake tester comes out clean. Cake should be golden on top.
  8. Cool in pan 10 min. and then turn out to cool completely on a cooling rack.
