Poppyseed Cake

Jessie used our delicate and smooth Everyday Fresh oil for the cake. She says that while it may look like a pound cake, “the olive oil sets (this cake) apart, taste-wise.”A pound cake - which Jessie notes is “delightfully dense” - typically requires three sticks of butter. The olive oil cake, she says, “had a more tender, layer cake-like crumb” and a “rich flavor that while not buttery, was very delicious - luxuriant and lightly fruity-nutty.”In addition to the olive oil, lemon and poppyseeds, the recipe calls for flour, sugar, milk, eggs, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. The glaze, meanwhile, combines lemon juice, almond extract, cream, and confectioners' sugar. (Click here to see the recipe.)Bon appétit,Your friends at California Olive Ranch
