1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room temp
1 cup sugar
zest of 2 blood oranges
2 large eggs
1/2 cup buttermilk
1/4 cup fresh blood orange juice
Preheat the oven to 325°F & line a loaf pan with parchment. (Or grease it)
Beat together the butter, sugar & zest until light and fluffy. Then beat in the eggs. Mix in the dry ingredients until just combined. Add the buttermilk and orange juice.
Pour into the pan, bake for about an hour and ten, until lightly golden and a toothpick comes out clean. Then let it rest for fifteen minutes, then lift it out of the pan to cool on a rack.
