How to cook Chocolate Olive Oil Cake:
Chocolate olive oil cake is a rich and decadent dessert that combines the flavors of chocolate and the subtle fruitiness of olive oil. Here's a recipe to guide you in making a delicious chocolate olive oil cake:
- 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
- ½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- ⅔ cup extra-virgin olive oil
- 2 large eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup buttermilk
- ½ cup hot water
- Powdered sugar, for dusting (optional)
- Fresh berries or whipped cream, for serving (optional)
- Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a 9-inch round cake pan and line the bottom with parchment paper.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
- In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the granulated sugar, olive oil, eggs, and vanilla extract until well combined.
- Gradually add the dry ingredient mixture to the wet ingredients, alternating with the buttermilk. Begin and end with the dry ingredients, mixing until just combined. Be careful not to overmix.
- Pour in the hot water and stir until the batter is smooth and well incorporated.
- Transfer the batter to the prepared cake pan, spreading it evenly.
- Bake in the preheated oven for approximately 30-35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.
- Remove the cake from the oven and let it cool in the pan for about 10 minutes. Then, transfer it to a wire rack to cool completely.
- Once the cake has cooled, you can dust it with powdered sugar for a decorative touch, if desired.
- Serve the chocolate olive oil cake on its own or with fresh berries and a dollop of whipped cream for added indulgence.
Enjoy the moist and rich flavors of the chocolate olive oil cake, a delightful treat for chocolate lovers!
