- 1/2 cup Solon Extra Virgin Olive Oil

- 1 1/4 cup granulated sugar

- 2 large eggs

- 2 tsp vanilla extract

- 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

- 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder, sifted

- 3/4 tsp baking soda

- 3/4 tsp Kalas Iodized Sea Salt

- 1/2 cup buttermilk

- 1 tsp instant espresso

- 1/2 cup hot water


- 3/4 cup heavy cream

- 4 ounces semi-sweet chocolate, finely chopped


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease a 9-inch round cake pan with olive oil and line the bottom with parchment paper. Boil 1/2 cup of water and set aside to cool.

  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together sugar and olive oil. Add eggs and vanilla, mixing until well combined. Stir in cocoa powder until fully incorporated.

  3. In a separate medium-sized bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt.

  4. With a mixer on low speed, alternately add flour mixture and buttermilk to the sugar mixture, ending with the flour mixture. Mix until fully incorporated.

  5. Dissolve instant espresso in hot water. Gradually add the espresso mixture to the batter, mixing until just combined.

  6. Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan and bake on the middle rack for 40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean.

  7. While the cake is baking, heat heavy cream in a saucepan until it just starts to simmer. Remove from heat and pour over the chopped semi-sweet chocolate. Let it sit for 3-5 minutes.

  8. Whisk the ganache mixture until smooth and creamy. Cover with plastic wrap and let it cool to room temperature.

  9. Once the cake is baked, let it cool in the pan for 10 minutes before transferring it to a wire rack to cool completely.

  10. Spread the whipped ganache over the top of the cooled cake. Enjoy this decadent treat with your loved ones!
