Bring this cake to your next holiday gathering - your friends won't believe this is made with olive oil! This is a more "old fashioned" pound cake recipe, and uses few ingredients.
1 1/4 cups flour
3 large eggs
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup olive oil (half of this mild EVOO and half Meyer Lemon olive oil)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 tsp baking powder
Preheat oven 350, and grease a cake pan (I used 9 in round pan)
Mix dry ingredients
Beat eggs into mixture
Slowly add olive oil and mix until blended. I did this by hand to avoid over-mixing.
Mix in vanilla
Bake for 45 mins until top is golden brown and inserted toothpick comes out clean.
Allow to cool and enjoy. Add a light drizzle of strawberry balsamic for an extra treat!
