Steps to make Blood Orange Loaf and Blood Orange Glaze


Preheat oven and prepare baking pan

Preheat the oven to 350 °F and grease a 9x5-inch loaf pan with oil or butter.


Combine butter and sugar


In a large bowl using an electric beater on medium speed, beat ½ cup butter and 1 cup of sugar until combined, light and fluffy.


Add eggs


Add 2 large eggs, 1 egg at a time, and mix to combine.


Add milk


On low speed, gradually pour in ½ cup of milk and continue mixing until combined.


Combine dry ingredients


In a separate bowl, sift and combine 1½ cup of all-purpose flour, 1 teaspoon of baking powder, ½ teaspoon of salt and the zest from 1 blood orange.


Combine all ingredients


Gradually add the dry ingredients bowl to the bowl of wet ingredients and mix until just combined. Take care to not over mix.




Transfer the batter to a prepared loaf pan and bake in the preheated oven for 40-50 minutes until baked in the center and the loaf gently bounces when touched.




Remove from the heat and allow to cool in the pan for 5 minutes before removing to cool completely.


Prepare glaze


In a small bowl, whisk 3 tablespoons of orange juice, 2 tablespoons of butter and ½ cup of icing sugar until combined and a pourable glaze forms.



Drizzle glaze over the cooled cake and garnish with some blood orange slices, if you wish.

Worth trying if you're second guessing, I'd only recommend to make a lot of room on your table to make this!

I'd gladly get fat eating this loaf on a daily basis! The orange glaze is just heavenly.

This is so fancy it reminds me of an actual bakery dish and I made it in my own home!!

Elodie Buechele

Kids love this more than plain ole' vanilla icecream cake so I'd say this is a big winner for sure.

I used brown sugar instead and almond milk, I think it makes it taste a little different but still very good.

This was super hard to make to be honest, didn't think I'd manage to do it at all but It came out alright just slightly burnt.
