This cake has just the right amount of sweetness to it. It's also a wonderful treat. I actually found this recipe online from another site but have had to substitute items for others to meet my needs.

- 2 cups sugar
- 1 1⁄2 cups olive oil
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 3 cups whole wheat flour
- 1 teaspoon salt

- Grease a 10-inch tube pan.
- In a mixing bowl, beat eggs until foamy; gradually add sugar.

- Combine flour, salt and baking soda; add to egg mixture.
- Add as much of the liquid as you need to make it so it easily pours from the bowl to the pan (not too thin though).

- Cool on wire rack for 10 minutes.
- Remove cake to a serving platter.
