This cake is not too sweet, perfectly lemony, moist and super easy to make, what more could you ask for? Olive oil cakes are getting more and more popular, I always thought it sounded very savory and tasteless but it surprised me. Olive oil cake is nice as it is, but I opted to add lemon and a bit of a glaze. I hope you enjoy this cake as much as I did!

  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • 3 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3⁄4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2⁄3 cup milk
  • 3 cups + 2 tbsp all purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt

For the glaze:
  • Juice of 1/2 a large lemon
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar

  • Preheat oven to 325F.
  • Grease a large loaf pan with oil and dust with flour. (You could also use a bundt pan.)
  • Beat the eggs and sugar together on high speed for 1 min.
  • Add the lemon juice and zest, vanilla, olive oil, milk, flour, baking powder and salt. combine well.
  • Spoon the batter into the prepared loaf pan.
  • Bake at 325F for 45-50 mins (or until golden brown).
  • Mix the lemon and powdered sugar together to make the glaze and brush
    over the top of the cake while it is still warm.


  1. This looks delicious. I've never tried an olive oil cake, so this would be really interesting to make :)

  2. I got excited because i thought it was bread. Looks good though!

  3. Oh yummy! This looks so good! I may even try baking it tomorrow :D
