Olive oil cakes are some of the easiest and most enjoyable cakes to make at home. They require less work because you aren’t worried about creaming butter and sugar together, and they tend to stay moist longer than their dairy laden cousins. I like to use a delicate, less spicy olive oils when baking. They add just a hint of olive flavor that plays perfectly with the sweet ingredients in this cake. With just whisper olive and a hint of lemon in the sponge offset by the delicious candied orange slivers on top, this cake is the perfect Sunday afternoon treat.
