Ingredients:


- 2 cups all-purpose flour

- 1 1/2 cups sugar + 1/4 cup

- 1/2 tsp baking soda

- 1/2 tsp baking powder

- 2 tsp salt

- 1 1/4 cups Solon Extra Virgin Olive Oil

- 1 1/4 cups whole milk

- 3 large eggs

- 1 tbsp grated orange zest

- 1 tbsp grated lemon zest

- 1/3 cup fresh orange juice and lemon juice


Instructions:


  1. Preheat and Prepare: Begin by preheating your oven to 350 degrees F. Line the bottom of a 9-inch cake pan with parchment paper. There's no need to grease the pan since this cake celebrates the richness of Solon Olive Oil.

  2. Whisking Magic: In a large bowl, sift together the flour, sugar, salt, baking soda, and baking powder. Whisk the dry ingredients together, creating a harmonious blend that sets the foundation for the cake's sumptuousness.

  3. Liquid Elegance: In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, whole milk, Solon Extra Virgin Olive Oil, and the vibrant zests of orange and lemon. The combination of citrus aromas and the luxurious olive oil creates an intoxicating melody of fragrances.

  4. Fusion of Flavours: Merge the wet and dry ingredients, whisking until they harmonize into a silky batter. Solon Olive Oil becomes the conductor, infusing each molecule with its distinct richness.

  5. Into the Oven: Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan, letting it find its place with grace. As a final touch, sprinkle a tablespoon of sugar on top, which will add a delicate caramelized crust to the cake.

  6. Golden Perfection: Bake in the preheated oven for 40-50 minutes. Keep a watchful eye until the top radiates a golden hue and a toothpick emerges clean, confirming the cake's readiness.

  7. Cooling with Patience: Once out of the oven, allow the cake to cool for 10-15 minutes. Gently run a knife around the edges, then flip it onto a wire rack to remove the cake pan. Feel the anticipation build as the aroma fills the air.

  8. Enchanting Finish: After the cake has cooled slightly, take a moment to sprinkle the remaining sugar over the top and sides. This subtle sweetness adds an enchanting touch to the cake's appearance and taste.

Whether served alone or adorned with a dollop of whipped cream, this masterpiece invites you to embark on a journey of taste, texture, and celebration.
