Orange Olive Oil Cake, this is the Perfect, Breakfast, Snack or even Dessert Cake. So good.
With the arrival of Fall in Italy, comes grape picking and one of my favourites (because it’s less messy) olive picking.
And to tell the truth there is nothing like Fresh Olive Oil, well, ok my husband’s wine comes pretty darn close.

I have never made an Olive Oil Cake before, but I decided to give (a friend’s recipe) this Orange Olive Oil Cake a go. And believe me it is really worth a try and not just once.
Nothing better than a fast and easy cake that tastes amazing. I wanted to give it an extra boost of orange so I thought a simple powdered sugar glaze made with fresh squeezed orange juice would be perfect.
