In a large mixing bowl, add the zest of 1 blood orange and cane sugar. Use an electric hand mixer to combine.
Beat in the eggs one at a time ensuring that the egg is fully incorporated before adding in the next. Then add in almond extract.
Pour in baking powder, salt, and ~¼ of flour. Beat together until smooth throughout.
Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and place in the oven. Bake for 1 hour and 5 minutes. Note: oven times may vary and need to adjust +/- 10-15 minutes.
To make the glaze, combine powdered sugar, melted butter, and juice/zest of blood orange and optional ½ tsp orange extract. Use an electric hand mixer to combine glaze together.
