This is a fabulous dessert ... with a sense of true Italy. Try substituting lemon for a nice change. Original recipe courtesy of Michael Chiarello, of the Food Network.

How to Make ORANGE OLIVE OIL CAKE

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350.
    Oil 2 10" round cake pans. (I have used 10" deep dish pie pan instead)
  2. In a nonreactive saucepan, reduce the orange juice over medium heat to 1/4 cup.
    Add salt, stir, and cool.
  3. Lightly beat eggs with paddle attachment in standing mixer on high for 1 minute until fluffy.
    Add milk, sugar, liquer, olive oil, reduced orange juice, lemon zest, anise, and 1 T rosemary.
    Mix for 1 minute until well blended.
    Mix in the flour, baking soda, and baking powder until well blended and smooth.
  4. Pour 1/2 of the mixure into each oil pan.
    Bake for 1 hour.
    Place on a rack to cool.
    Run a knife around the edges and place cake on a plate. While the cake is still warm, smooth 3 T of marmalade onto the top of each cake.
    Sprinkle remaining 1 tsp rosemary evenly over both cakes.
    Garnish center with rosemary sprig.
    Cut each cake into wedges and serve.
