    I’m obsessed with blood oranges. Literally obsessed. It’s officially blood orange season and I’ve been on the hunt for them for close to a month now, checking pretty much every grocery store in California, and I FINALLY found some this week! I’m so happy. I’m kind of shocked that any of these oranges lasted long enough for me to bake with them, but here we are.

    This is my favorite citrus recipe, which is awesome as a cake but somehow even better as donuts. I usually make it with oranges or lemons, but I had to make it with blood oranges because I knew it would be over the top delicious. And it is. Please don’t let the olive oil scare you: it doesn’t make the donuts greasy at all, it makes the donuts super moist and gives it a great crumb structure.

    PS look at that glaze, that color is everything.

    Olive Oil Donuts

    • 1 cup nondairy milk
    • 1 Tbsp. blood orange zest
    • 1 Tbsp. freshly-squeezed blood orange juice
    • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
    • 1/3 cup olive oil
    • 2 cups minus 4 Tbsp. all-purpose flour
    • 4 Tbsp. cornstarch
    • 1 tsp. baking soda
    • 1/2 tsp. salt

    Blood Orange Glaze

    • 1 Tbsp. blood orange zest
    • 2 Tbsp. freshly-squeezed blood orange juice
    • 1 cup powdered sugar


    • Preheat oven to 350ºF.
    • Mix together the nondairy milk, 1 Tbsp. orange juice, 1 Tbsp. zest, granulated sugar, and olive oil.
    • Sift together the dry ingredients (flour, cornstarch, baking soda, and salt).
    • Fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and fold gently, mixing until just combined. Be careful not to overmix!
    • Scoop the batter into a greased donut mold, filling about 3/4 of the way full.
    • Bake for 15-20 minutes until golden brown on the edges.
    • For the glaze, combine the remaining 2 Tbsp. orange juice with 1 cup sifted powdered sugar. Mix well until completely smooth, then drizzle over the cooled donuts. You can also dip the donuts in the glaze, but be careful because the glaze sets very quickly so it could rip the donuts!
    • Garnish with a small pinch of orange zest.
