Recipe Of The Day: Olive Oil Cake

Serve this one with a strawberry and rhubarb compote.

But olive oil makes some great desserts too, and that can be best tasted in a simple olive oil cake recipe. Olive oil makes a great rustic cake, with a soft crumb and a great golden crust. And it's perfect for pairing with fresh spring fruit that will soon be readily available.
