You know I loooooove olive oil. I mean 95% of the recipes on my blog have it listed in the ingredients. Olive oil is a staple that my family cannot live without. We cook with it, bake with it, and nourish our skin with it. Olive oil pretty much is the best thing ever if you ask me. So when the lovely folks at Carapelli Olive Oil invited me to create an elegant recipe using their amazing Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil, I gladly accepted.
Olive Oil Cake can be simple and rustic, which I love, but I thought it would be fun to jazz it up a bit with the flavor of some local honey and top it with fresh figs and raspberries and the last of the edible flowers from our garden this season. You can really taste the fresh, earthy, almost sweet flavor of Carapelli’s Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil with hints of apple and almonds in this cake. The crumb is delightfully moist with slightly crispy edges, and the flavor of the honey really shines through as well, blending perfectly with the soft, balanced fruity olive oil.
Carapelli Olive Oil was founded in 1893 in the heart of Tuscany, Italy, where they have mastered the art of producing beautifully balanced olive oils, skillfully crafted in harmony with nature. They make it their mission to create a masterpiece in every bottle of olive oil produced by selecting only the highest quality olives nurtured by nature and harvested delicately at the optimal time.
