Orange-scented Olive Oil Cake
Post by Margaret.
You’re kidding, right? A cake with 1 1/2 cups of Olive Oil? Won’t it be extra heavy? Won’t it taste like OIL??
This wasn’t a light cake but it wasn’t heavy like I expected with all the oil. The texture was similar to cornbread. It was slightly sweet and delicious. I only made 1/3 of the recipe which fit quite well in my little oval Wilton pan. Just enough for two of us (and some in the freezer). I topped it with orange flavored whipped cream and topped with mandarin oranges. Perfect dessert after a heavy meal.
This cake is quick to make as are many of Malgieri’s recipes.
I found the recipe on katrina’s blog she/s in the kitchenBut you really should find Nick’s the Modern Baker. Lovely recipes and beautiful photographs. Well worth it!!
There is still time to join the Modern Baker Challenge. We are doing CAKES through the end of December!!
