Traditional Olive Oil Cake

Traditional Olive Oil Cake
By Camilla Ferraro, Camilla Ferraro Inspired Nutrition

INGREDIENTS

    • 2.5-3 cups of spelt flour
    • 1 cup of coconut sugar (or rapadura)
    • 2 tsp baking powder
    • 1 cup of olive oil
    • 5 eggs, beaten
    • 1/2 tsp vanilla paste or essence
    • 1 cup of milk (of your choice)
    • 1 tbsp of grated citrus peel (lemon or orange)

INSTRUCTIONS

1. Preheat oven to 190 degrees celsius.
2. Grease a 20-22 cm springform tin.
3. Add flour, sugar, baking powder and citrus peel to a large mixing bowl and stir to combine.
4. In a separate bowl, mix the eggs, oil, vanilla and milk.
5.Add the wet ingredients to the dry and gently mix until just combined.
6. Pour cake batter into tin and bake in oven for 40-45 mins. At 40 mins test the centre of the cake using a skewer. If it comes out clean then remove to avoid compromising the cake's moistness. Allow cake to cool before releasing from tin.

NOTES

Start with 2.5 cups of flour and adjust consistency of batter (if too thin) at end by adding extra flour.
