The sounds of this cake may not seem that exciting and maybe even weird (olive oil in cake?), but rest assured it's one tasty cake. I decided to make it because I noticed that I had a whole jar of almond meal in my pantry, and I wanted to put some of the amazing olive oil that I brought back from Italy to good use. The original recipe has a brown butter glaze that I'm sure is delicious, but I was out of butter at the time so I served it on its own. This cake is not too sweet, but really flavourful. The almond meal gives it a great texture and the olive oil keeps the cake really moist.
