I made this lemon olive-oil cake for Madeline’s study group. It was from Gourmet Magazine that I found on Epicurious. Perfect with a pot of hot tea on a cold January afternoon. Super easy and so delicious!

Yesterday, I had the pleasure of having 6 classmates of my daughter here to work on a “team project” and I prepared my home made classic mac n cheese and they loved it so much. How marvelous that cake looks! Good luck to all the test takers~

I have never heard of olive oil cake, I always find olive oil a bit overpowering but I can see how it would balance well in a squidgy sponge cake.

Mmmmmm… My dad and son in law are lovers of lemon. I need to do some research at Epicurious! By the way…I was saying prayers for you to win first in line! The Utah girls that won were good! There is always next year, my friend!

Trying to imagine the flavor of olive oil in a cake. But I love lemon so I’ll bet the cake was delicious….it certainly looks fantastic. Lucky girls to get homemade cake to study with!
Just reading comments above…bummed you didn’t win the glassbaby contest!
Have a great day Annie.

Annie this photo belongs on the cover of a magazine. The contrast between the crust and the bright yellow lemon is amazing.
