My favorite new thing: Olive Oil Cake
easy and perfect for winter! now the difficulty is to find the perfect recipe. Because sometimes it is not about the chef but all about the recipe.
so this is one very flavorful:
3/4 cup Olive Oil
1 large lemon
1 cup all purpose flour
5 egg yolks
4 egg whites
3/4 cup plus 1 Tablespoon 1/2 sugar
Direction: 350 degree. oil parchment paper. grease plus add dust flour
Add the lemon zest to the flour. Juice the lemon.
Beat egg yolks and mix with 1/2 cup sugar at high speed until it gets thick and pale (3 minutes)
reduce speed to medium: slowly add the olive oil and 1 tablespoon 1/2 of juice.
Add flour and gently fold.
beat egg whites until foamy. add slowly 1/4 cup sugar until soft peaks.
fold egg whites into the cake bater.
Bake for 45 minutes.
Cool down for 10 minutes
