Cake that is good enough to give as a gift. Dress it up with a ribbon and share it with your friends and family. It features two types of olive oil, cream, and sugar.

  • 250 grams granulated sugar
  • 4 whole eggs
  • salt
  • 110 grams cream
  • 200 grams flour
  • 4 grams baking powder
  • 30 grams basil olive oil
  • 15 grams olive oil (unflavored)
  • 1 lemon (organic)

Directions

  1. In a bowl, mix the sugar, eggs, cream, and a pinch of salt.
  2. Mix in flour sifted with baking powder to obtain a homogeneous paste.
  3. Add the olive oil and lemon zest to the paste.
  4. Cool cake overnight so paste absorbs the lemon's scent.
  5. Preheat oven to 150 degrees Celsius.
  6. If possible, use a flexible cake mold, or a baking pan lined with parchment paper.
  7. Pour batter into the mold.
  8. Bake for 1 hour.

This cake is surprisingly light and very full of flavor. I like the lemon and basil together. Most cakes are so sweet and this one will appeal to people who aren't keen on sugary sweets.
