new obsession: olive oil cake


Mmmmmmm, delicious.  I got the recipe from Sunday Suppers, but I added poppy seeds to mine.

oh great! love poppy seeds.
but i only use olive oil for everything (and when i make brownies...no one knows the difference...;)

Oh man, I made some lemon olive oil cake awhile back. Once I figured out I *needed* a hand-mixer, it was heavenly!

oh, I do love the texture of this! I discovered it with this recipe by Celine: http://havecakewilltravel.com/2007/08/12/lemony-french-cake/ and now I am making it at least once a week!

Thanks for sharing! I love this cake. I didn't have lemons, so I used orange with a pinch of cinnamon instead, but this is a great cake! I love that they use olive oil instead of butter...

Wow this looks yummy and reminds me of a pudding I ate in a posh restaurant (The OXO Tower restaurant) in London in May; an olive oil and black olive roulade with cinnamon sauce. I keep meaning to try out something sweet and olivey for my kids (who could live off olives) maybe this would be a good place to start.
