Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time10 mins
Total Time20 mins
Servings: 4


  • 3/4 cup All-Purpose Flour or Cake Flour
  • 1 tsp. Baking Powder
  • 1/8 tsp. Sea Salt
  • 3 tbsp. Olive Oil
  • 4 tbsp. Honey or Maple Syrup
  • 1 large Egg
  • 1/4 cup Milk
  • 3 tbsp. Fresh Orange Juice (~1/2 orange)
  • Zest of 1 Orange
  • 1/2 tsp. Vanilla Extract
  • 1/4 tsp. Almond Extract


  • Preheat oven to 350F.
  • In a small bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, and sea salt.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the olive oil, honey, egg, milk, vanilla extract, almond extract, orange zest, and orange juice.
  • Pour the olive oil mixture into the flour mixture, then mix to combine. (As always, be careful not to overmix the batter.)
  • Evenly pour the batter into 4 mini baking pans that have been greased and lightly floured. My baking pans were 3.5" diameter.
  • Bake for 10-15 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  • Allow them to cool completely, then top with freshly whipped cream (I folded in a little extra orange zest into the whip cream). Enjoy!
