​This Provence Herbs & Orange Blossom Olive Oil Cake Recipe Will Make You Rethink Your Spice Rack

Have you tried baking with herbs and spices? At Hummus Chick, we were deliciously inspired by Local Milk's Herbes de Provence and Rose Olive Oil Cake and decided to try it for ourselves. We incorporated our Provence herb blend, swapped rose water for orange blossom and modified the recipe to be dairy free.

You'll need:


Here's how to make it:

  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Thoroughly grease cake pan, especially if using a bundt pan.
  2. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, Provence herb blend and sugar.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the grapefruit juice, olive oil, buttermilk, orange blossom and eggs.
  4. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and gently stir with a spoon to just combine, making sure to scrape the bottom. Do not over mix.
  5. Pour the batter about 2/3 way up the sides of your cake pan(s) (will make about three small bundt cakes or two to three 8-inch layers depending on how thick you make them). 
  6. Bake for 30 minutes to an hour, depending on size of cakes. Cake should be a deep golden brown and a cake tester should come out clean when inserted. A few crumbs are fine; it just shouldn't be wet or goopy.
  7. Allow cakes to cool in their tins about 10 minutes. Turn them out onto a cooking rack to cool completely before icing.
  8. To make the glaze, whisk the juice and orange blossom into the powdered sugar. Add sugar if you need to thicken it to get it to a pourable, but quite thick, consistency. Alternately, you can thin it with additional juice or cream as needed. Spoon the glaze over your cake.
