Screenshot 20220202 160453 Photos 2

Cake ingredients

1 cup extra virgin olive oil,plus more for pan

¼ cup cannabis infused olive oil

1 cup sugar; ¼ cup of sugar

2 cups cake flour

⅓ cup almond flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

½ teaspoon baking soda

½ teaspoon kosher salt

1 tablespoon finely grated lemon zest

3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

3 large eggs

Optional add 2 oz amaretto liquor 

 

Blood Orange Icing

1 cup powdered sugar

4 oz blood orange juice

Zest of 1 blood orange

Zest of half a lemon

 

Garnish 

Sliced blood orange with peel removed

 

Step 1

Preheat oven to 400°. Drizzle bottom and sides of pan with oil and use your fingers to coat. Line bottom with a round of parchment paper and smooth to eliminate air bubbles; coat parchment with more oil. Generously sprinkle pan with sugar and tilt to coat in an even layer; tap out excess. 

Whisk cake flour, 1/4 cup of sugar, almond flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl to combine and eliminate any lumps. Stir together lemon juice, and vanilla in a small bowl.

Step 2

Using an electric mixer on high speed with whisk attachment, beat eggs, lemon zest, and 1 cup of sugar in a large bowl until mixture is very light, thick, pale, and falls off the whisk or beaters in a slowly dissolving ribbon, about 3 minutes if using a stand mixer and about 5 minutes if using a hand mixer. With mixer still on high speed, gradually stream in 1¼ cups oil and beat until incorporated and mixture is even thicker. 

Reduce mixer speed to low and add dry ingredients in 3 additions, alternating with amaretto mixture in 2 additions, beginning and ending with dry ingredients. Fold batter several times with a large rubber spatula, making sure to scrape the bottom and sides of bowl. Scrape batter into prepared pan, smooth top, and sprinkle with more sugar.

Step 3

Place cake in oven and immediately reduce oven temperature to 350°. Bake until top is golden brown, center is firm to the touch, and a tester inserted into the center comes out clean, 20 - 35  minutes. Transfer pan to a wire rack and let cake cool in pan 15 minutes.

Step 4

Poke holes all over top of cake with a toothpick or skewer and drizzle with remaining 2 Tbsp. oil; let it absorb. Run a thin knife around edges of cake and remove ring from pan. Slide cake onto rack and let cool completely. Drizzle with royal icing.
