Home made cake with The House of Olive orange flavor olive oil

Our kids love cakes and chocolate. I usually prepare our mother to daughter traditional recipe but I also love new tastes! Last Monday, I decided to experiment with the ingredients. I mixed butter with a small quantity of our orange flavor olive oil. Instead of 125g butter, I put 90g and 40ml olive oil and instead of milk I added orange juice. The result was a flavorful orange cake, full of orange & chocolate aromas. What a nice way to start the week!


250g flour ( + 1 teaspoon baking powder)

2 eggs

125g butter ( or 90g butter & 40ml olive oil)

200g sugar  (it’ s too sweet for me, so I usually add 160g)

125ml orange juice

40g bitter chocolate ( I blend it with the mix in order to get a marble cake)

Bake it for 30 minutes at 180 C
