Recipe Ingredients for Olive Oil Cake

3 large eggs
1 cup granulated sugar
1 1/2 cups whole milk
1 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 cup amaretto liqueur
1 tablespoon finely grated orange zest
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup cornmeal
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 pinch of salt
1 Powdered sugar, for garnish

Recipe Directions for Olive Oil Cake

  1. Heat the oven to 350F and arrange a rack in the middle. Coat a 9-inch round cake pan with olive oil and flour; tap out the excess.

  2. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs and granulated sugar until well blended and light in color. Add milk, olive oil, amaretto, and orange zest and mix well.

  3. In another bowl, stir together flour, cornmeal, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add egg mixture to the dry ingredients, stirring until just blended (the batter will be slightly lumpy; do not overmix).

  4. Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan. Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out with only a few crumbs, about 40 to 50 minutes. Remove from the oven and place on a wire rack to cool completely.

  5. When the cake has cooled, run a knife around the perimeter of the pan and invert the cake onto a serving plate. Dust with powdered sugar, cut into 12 pieces, and serve.
