Ingredients

  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • pinch of orange zest
  • 3/4 cup high-quality extra virgin 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 berries, fresh or frozen

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F and line an 8 or 9 inch round with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. In a stand mixer on medium speed, beat the sugar, orange zest, 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!
  3. 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.
  4. Add the dry ingredients (all purpose flour, almond flour, baking powder, and salt) and stir until just combined. Do not over mix. Last, fold in the berries gently.
  5.  Pour the batter into your prepared pan and bake for 45 -55 minutes or until he cake is a lightly golden brown and a knife inserted into the middle comes out mostly clean. Dust with powdered sugar and enjoy!
