#ImprovCookingChallenge ~ Orange Olive Oil Pound Cake

For October's #ImprovCookingChallengewe were given the ingredients of orange and olive oil to combine into a recipe. I wasn't quite sure which direction I wanted to go until I ran a few searches and came across this olive oil cake. I've never made an olive oil cake but was super curious! I knew it would be very moist - and the orange flavoring sounded like a lovely addition. 

I'm glad I gave this one a try! It was really tender, and it's absolutely the PERFECT tea cake / bread. The texture and flavor reminds me quite a bit of many of the quick breads I've made. It's labeled as a pound cake - and does have a fairly dense texture. But so much moisture in each bite - and a lovely light orange flavor. If you want a stronger orange flavor, up the extract content.
