So J and I decided we needed some cake. We haven’t enjoyed something sweet and yummy together for a long time. I, being used to traditional cakes, decided I needed to find something that was more within the types of foods that J might eat. Basically this means a cake not requiring shortening and a cake which I could use organic sugar and whole wheat flour in.
I found Lemon Olive Oil cake. It wasn’t too hard to make. I threw in some almonds for good measure, thinking they might give it some additional flavor. The recipe calls for adding sugar to the top, but I did not do so. Some of the reviews mention that it is not a very sweet cake. We found it to be flavorful and sweet enough. We may even cut out some sugar next time. The flavor of the lemon really carries it. I think that this would taste lovely with a fresh blueberry sauce. Also, some real whipped cream would be lovely. It holds up well all on its own too!
