This easy and moist cake is packed with antioxidants too!
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 2 large chicken eggs, room temperature (or 1 large duck egg)
- 3/4 cup Fresh Harvest Mani Orange or Blood Orange olive oil
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 cup + 2 Tablespoons all-purpose flour
- ½ cup almond flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- ¾ teaspoon salt
- 1 1/2 cups raspberries, fresh or frozen
- Preheat the oven to 350°F and line an 8 or 9 inch round with parchment paper or baking spray. Set aside.
- In a stand mixer on medium speed, beat the sugar and eggs together until pale yellow, about 1 minute. If you don’t have a stand mixer, you can also do this by hand with a whisk!
- Keeping the mixer going at a medium-low speed, slowly streaming in the olive oil to emulsify. Make sure you go slowly to prevent the batter from splitting! Add in the vanilla extract and mix well.
- Add the dry ingredients (all-purpose flour, almond flour, baking powder, and salt) and stir until just combined. Do not overmix. Last, fold in the berries gently.
- Pour the batter into your prepared pan and bake for 45 -55 minutes or until the cake is a light golden brown and a knife inserted into the middle comes out mostly clean. (Optional: dust with powdered sugar and enjoy!)
This cake is best served chilled with a dollop of whipped cream.
