I’m by no means an expert baker, but sometimes you’ve just got to appease the crowds (i.e. Eric). My fiancé doesn’t just have one sweet tooth, he’s got a whole mouthful. As I perused through one of my best friend’s blogs, I saw the words ‘olive oil’ + ‘lemon’ side by side and knew I needed to try it for myself. The olive oil adds a certain depth to the cake, but without the heaviness. I was tempted to call it a loaf, but ultimately ended up calling it a cake due to the cane sugar sprinkled on top and also to appeal to the man. (Note to self: men would rather eat something called a cake, rather than a loaf.) I also made the fresh blueberry sauce as suggested in the recipe here and all in all, it made it a colorful, beautiful dessert that was just the remedy for a cold night in the dead of winter.
