There are many reasons why people like olive oil cake. It is simple to make and not too sweet, very moist, and has a good texture. I prefer not to waste it by making something else from it. I like to experiment with this recipe, by substituting different ingredients. I love the idea of a cake that is dense and moist, and that you can eat with your hands.
Cooking with olive oil is a great way to get a better balance of saturated fats and unsaturated fats.
Last year, I tried the Olive Oil Cake diet for a few days. I lost a little weight, but it ended up being a miserable experience. I was hungry all the time, was moody, and felt like a failure. Of course, I was so focused on the diet that I didn’t know that there were two sides to the story—the science and the skepticism. I didn’t know that the success stories I read about were just that, and most people stopped following the diet because they just couldn’t stick to it. Most of the people I know who have lost weight with Olive Oil Cake do so by completely avoiding carbohydrates.
Until Matthew prepared this Cake made with olive oil, I had never tasted an olive oil dessert. I was apprehensive when he proposed the plan. I couldn’t picture it tasting decent, much less wonderful. But I fell in love with this olive oil cake the moment I took my first taste. Corn bread is one of my favorite foods if you know me at all, and if you don’t, you do now. This olive oil cake tastes like paradise on a plate of cornbread! It’s thick, juicy, and somewhat sweet.
Olive Oil in the Kitchen
Because olive oil has such a strong flavor, I’ve never considered using it in baking. I had no idea that olive oil is a fantastic component for cakes and breads, and that it is often used by celebrity chefs! Matt, despite my protests, decided that we should bake an olive oil cake, and I’m happy he didn’t listen to me. The cake turned up thick and delicious, with just a hint of olive oil. This olive oil cake has quickly become one of my new favorite desserts, and I’m certain it will be yours as well.
Pound Cake with Low Carbs
Given the recipe’s thick, pound cake-like texture, you’d think the nutrients would be a lot worse. In fact, the low-carb, high-fat diet is one of the greatest aspects! When it came out of the oven, the first bite I took made me think of pound cake. Growing up, I used to argue with my closest friend over whether to make pound cake or angel food cake. Angel food cake was her favorite, and I couldn’t tolerate it. I’ve always been and will continue to be a pound cake fan! If you want to serve it at a party or a holiday gathering, a sugar glaze that coats the top and soaks into the cake would be ideal. Yum!

So, you’re looking for a good cake recipe and you have an olive oil cake pan? Me too. Olive oil cakes are such a personal thing that I can’t find a single recipe for that I can agree with. I think that’s why I like to make them myself, because they are just as easy, but I can’t let go of the idea that there is a right way to bake them. And what about the cake itself? The oil gives it a lovely texture, which, while not as light as a traditional oil cake, is still very moist.. Read more about olive oil cake, lemon and let us know what you think.
