What is an Olive Oil Cake?
A staple of Mediterranean cuisine, Olive Oil Cake is a versatile dish served for dessert, breakfast, or even as an afternoon snack across Italy, Greece, and beyond. Replacing the butter found in most cake recipes with cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil provides moisture, tenderness, and complexity for a subtly-sweet, totally addictive treat!
How do cakes stay fresh during shipping?
We double-seal our cakes in food-safe shrink wrap and ship in insulated boxes with a cold pack to preserve freshness!
How should I store my cake once it arrives?
If you plan to enjoy your cake within 2-3 days, keep it sealed and at room temperature until you’re ready to dig in, and re-wrap in cling film after cutting to preserve freshness. Otherwise, cakes can be frozen for up to 3 months. Thaw at room temperature for 3-4 hours before serving.
How many people does one cake serve?
Our cakes are 8 inches in diameter and can be divided into 8 generous slices for breakfast or dessert, or 12 smaller “snack” slices.
