This Olive Oil Bundt Cakes Recipe Is a Healthy + Fruity Twist on a Classic

Olive oil mixed in the batter gives these treats extra rich flavor

Confession time: I have a major sweet tooth, but I also try to be mindful of what I eat. But this olive oil bundt cakes recipe is my new hero! It ditches the butter for heart-healthy olive oil, making it a lighter option for dessert. Olive oil is high in healthy fats and antioxidants. Plus, adding to these bundt cakes adds a subtle fruity depth that complements citrus perfectly. That’s right: orange juice and zest flavor the batter. And let’s not forget the gorgeous presentation – a bundt cake fresh from the oven is a showstopper for any occasion. Remember, for a perfectly golden brown cake, preheat your oven well beforehand and resist the urge to over mix the batter. A few lumps are a-okay and contribute to a delightful crumb!
