3 eggs

1 1 / 2 cups sugar

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Beat eggs and sugar in a large bowl with a mixer on medium speed until thick and pale, about 3-4 minutes. Add zests, olive oil and milk; continue beating until smooth.

Sift together flour, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Add flour mixture to liquid, mixing until thoroughly combined. Pour batter into an oiled, floured bundt pan. Bake until golden and a tester comes out clean, about 40 minutes.

Cool in pan 10 minutes; turn onto a rack to cool. Dust with confectioners' sugar. Serve with berries.
