Cardamom Citrus Olive Oil Cake with Orange Glaze and Candied Citrus Slices

3 Comments 10 August 2012

Lately, olive oil cakes have been all the rage, but little do most of us know, is that Italians have been using olive oil in their moist cakes for centuries. 

 Many chefs use olive oil because it provides a nice richness and an undertone of earthy flavor without all the denseness and greasiness of butter that you would usually use in baking. 

Another difference of an olive oil cake is that it’s not an overly sweet cake, taking the notes from citrus and herbs, in this case cardamom.  Greek, Roman, Egyptian, and Arab cultures loved infusing this spice into their foods and potions because of their aphrodisiac qualities. (So, if you are looking for that extra special Hanukkah gift, you might try serving this Cardamom cake to your hubby ASAP!!!)

Its nice to always add new spices to our cooking and baking menus because of the healing qualities that benefit a varied diet. In this case, cardamom also contains chemicals that appear to treat stomach and intestinal issues, and increase the movement of food through the intestine. Thank you Rachel Harkham of RecipeRachel.com. for sending in this wonderful recipe.

 Make sure to use a high quality extra virgin olive oil to add to the sweeter, stronger flavors of this olive oil cake. 


Cardamom Citrus Olive Oil Cake

When you think of Hanukkah food  you think of Latkes, right? Golden,crisp-fried potato pancakes are perfect holiday food for a cold winter’s night. Lighting the menorah for eight nights aptly commemorates the miracle of  little jar of oil that lit up the menorah in the Temple.  Eating food made or prepared with oil is the best way to celebrate this eight day Festival of Light .  But after a few crispy fried nights when your taste buds are yearning for a different texture and taste, Citrus-Cardamom Olive Oil Cake is just the thing to keep the oil celebration going.  Made with olive oil (non-extra virgin yields moister results), with layers of bright citrus bursts  and warm cardamom spice, this cake tenderly celebrates both flavor and olive oil in every bite.

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup olive oil

  • ½ teaspoon  cardamom
