Dolce: Orange Almond Olive Oil Cake

Here is a recipe for a citrus-infused olive oil cake, a tasty and airy dolce. This cake is a little on the drier side, but I really like it when I’m looking for a light option for dessert. I find that olive oil cake can be the perfect end to a hearty meal. It also pairs very nicely with fresh fruit or fruit compote. –jacque

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt
