This was the first time I was making a cake using olive oil and I was really worried about the taste. But, I have been wanting to make this cake ever since you posted it and finally today, I did! At the outset I'd like to say that this cake is well worth all the time and effort that goes into making it. The only mistake which I made to be honest was to use 4 whole eggs for this, instead of 3 whole eggs and only the yolk of the last egg. I was humming a tune from 'Dil To Pagal Hai' and by mistake I added the white instead of the yolk. After doing that I realised that I had to add the yolk and not the white. Ah Bummer! LOL. Then I asked my mom's suggestion so as to what to do now because I couldn't throw out the 3 beaten eggs, ofcourse. So she suggested that I add the yolk as well of the last egg since as it is it was called for. And I said, "But oh mama, what about the white that's already inside?". She said, "that's fine, no problem, but add the yolk". So I did:-) Other than that, I didn't make a mistake anywhere else. This cake took 50 minutes to bake in my pre-heated AMC Dutch Oven. I was DESPERATE to taste it, but gave it 15 minutes to cool in the pan before flipping the pan over and removing it. Ah well, then, I allowed it to cool for yet another few minutes that were the examination of my 'Test of patience', Lol, and when I finally could take a slice, I was AMAZED, SIMPLY AMAZED, at how good this is! This will be a perfect cake to have at a birthday party. NOBODY can guess its the olive oil that imparts so much of awesome flavour(and I am someone who totally dislikes olive oil and will never use it, but for the sake of this cake, I bought a bottle!). Now, we can proudly say, "Cakes are good for health too"! ;-)person found this review Helpful. You can only vote others' reviews helpful or not helpful... Was this review helpful to you?

Let me start off by saying I use 2 criterea when judging a cake:1)How much I like it & 2) How much everyone else likes it.First off, it's much simplar to make than it sounds, in my book that's always a plus point. So, the first time I made it due to my "Gevaldig" figure I didn't even taste it, of course I wasn't given much chance to reconsider as it was gone the next day.One week later I start baking for the holidays & taking requests....top of the list, you got it- this cake. Of the 5 cakes I made, this was the 1st to disappear. Of course everybody groaned & said they had no room for dessert after appetisers, soup, main meal...etc. but somehow some of my guests even managed to have seconds! I know I've gone on long enough but this time I did taste an itsy bitsy little bit - all I can say is that I'm really glad there was only a mouthful left or my diet would have been shot to smithereens!people found this review Helpful.
