It’s easy to take olive oil, our number one pantry must-have, for granted. That’s why this month we are honoring olive oil, partnering with Sara Forte of Sprouted Kitchen to share tips, insights and recipes featuring olive oil.
There is a time and a place for an extravagant dessert, but these bite-sized treats defy dessert stereotypes. These pop-able delights are an elegant addition to a cocktail party, a brunch or as part of a dessert buffet — but they are equally appealing for those who may just want a little something sweet to end a family meal.
The magic of these cakes lies in the olive oil. While using butter as the fat in a cake batter brings an undeniably lovely creaminess to your dessert, olive oil has a higher fat content than butter (but without the palate-coating dairy fat), so it leaves your cakes very moist and pairs well with the light lemon flavor. This recipe keeps the cakes just moderately sweet to pair well with the lemony icing on top.
