For those who are unfamiliar, olive oil cakes use the familiar oil instead of other vegetable oils or butter as its consistency ingredient.
“Olive Oil is great for baking, because it is healthier for you than some other fats commonly used in baking," Gayton says. "It also makes your baked goods moister, allowing them to stay fresher longer."
This strawberry olive oil cake is not too sweet and very moist indeed, topped with a jam-like, balsamic vinegar-infused strawberry mix and garnished with a dollop of whipped cream—or a scoop if your sweet tooth is tingling.
