I like olive oil cake and decided to make one. Since I don’t like things that are very sweet I looked at lots of different recipes and adjusted the ingredients to come up with this one. After a few exeriments I ended up with an olive oil cake that I really like.
In a large bowl mix together these dry ingredients:
220g (1 1/2 C) AP flour
1 1/2 t baking powder
3/4 t salt
In a medium sized bowl mix together these ingredients:
1/4 C sugar + 1 T honey
1/2 C olive oil
the zest and the juice of an orange
2 t poppy seeds
Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix.
Pour into a pan – I use a silicon pan – and bake for 45 minutes @ 325ºF
You may have to adjust baking temp and time, because I bake at 7,500 feet altitude.
