There are tons of of recipes for olive oil cake on-line and most are very comparable. Extraordinarily comparable in actual fact. My concept is, why mess with perfection? Olive oil cake is made with the standard cake components but in addition contains olive oil and loads of orange and lemon zest .
Earlier than baking, the batter is topped with almond slices so the cake has a crispy, nutty prime.
You’ll be able to function is, or prime the cake with assorted berries, peaches, grapes, no matter is in season!

Simply lovely! The flavors of candy fruit and wealthy olive oil are an beautiful pair!
