Blood oranges, they’re such amazing fruits to bake with. They are the perfect blend of sweet and sour. It’s no wonder this blood orange loaf cake came out so yummy and moist.
So here’s the backstory on the oranges I used. The other day I went grocery shopping and I think I went a little overboard with the fruits. I bought 1.5 pounds of blueberries (again), and 1.5 pounds of grapes, 2 racks of bananas, and a bag full of blood oranges.
How many people do I feed? Just me and the little one. So why so much fruit? Well, Magdalene loves snacking on them and we have a little bowl for breakfast. But this time I overdid it. This is why I had to create something out of that poor bag of blood oranges; they were on the verge of shrinking.
I’m happy to say that Magdalene helped a lot with this recipe. She was juicing those oranges and mixing that batter like a natural in her little Anna from Frozen dress. It’s a moment I will always remember.
