I know, I know... another loaf cake. But it's gorgeous and making a citrus loaf cake is sort of cathartic.

Blood Orange & Black Sesame Seed Loaf Cake

1 1/2 c flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
Sift together ⬆️

1/2 c olive oil
1 c sugar
1 c plain Greek yogurt
3 eggs
1 tbsp black sesame seeds
Zest of 2 blood oranges
1 tbsp blood orange juice
1 tsp vanilla extract
Mix batter and then add dry ingredients. Bake in a lined loaf tin at 170c for 40-50 minutes.
Glaze: Melt together 1/3 cup blood orange juice & 1/3 cup sugar and pour over cake once baked.
Drizzle: Mix together icing sugar & blood orange juice a little at a time to make drizzle-worthy. You can sieve out any orange pulp, or leave it; makes it rustic. (Lower right corner of my cake.) Dress the cake and finish with a sprinkling of sesame seeds.

I hope you like it! We thought it was delicious. I took a basic lemon drizzle recipe I use and used blood Orange instead. I did think it a bit too sweet so next time I shall use only 3/4 c sugar in the batter, and maybe cut the glaze to 1/4 c sugar::water.
Never too much citrus! I am making this cake..
