If you’re looking for a new go-to cake recipe, this olive oil cake is just what you want. 


  • 3 large eggs
  • 3/4  cup of white sugar
  • 112 grams of extra-virgin olive oil+extra for greasing
  • 120 grams of whole milk
  • 1/2  teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 1/4  teaspoon of almond extract
  • 1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour+extra for the tin
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder
  • 1/2  teaspoon kosher salt


  1. Bring the eggs to room temperature and then crack them into the bowl of a stand mixer. 
  2. Add in the sugar and whisk on high for 30 seconds. 
  3. Bring the speed down to low and slowly drizzle in the olive oil, followed by the milk, and then the vanilla and almond extracts. 
  4. Turn the mixer off and combine the flour, baking powder, and salt in a medium-sized bowl. 
  5. Whisk well so everything is combined, and with the mixer on low, spoon the dry ingredients into the wet. 
  6. Stop to scrape down the sides and mix on low until everything is just combined. 
  7. Take an 8 inch round tin and grease it using olive oil, and then use a little bit of flour just to lightly dust the pan.
  8. Pour in the batter into the tin and bake at 350 F for 30-35 minutes.
  9. Let it cool in the tin for 5 minutes, take it out and cool it completely on a wire rack and enjoy!
