Recipe | EVOO honey and lemon cake

The fourth and final recipe in our latest collaboration with our friends at Ironclad is this not-too-sweet-but-beautifully-flavoured honey and lemon cake.

Allpress EVOO makes for a light, moist and spongy cake like you’ve never tasted before. And it’s super simple. One cup, one bowl, one pan and boom! Pudding is served.  

The fruity flavour and aroma of the olive oil compliments the honey and the lemon without overpowering the cake. This is not a particularly sweet cake, so boost honey to 1 cup in the mix if you have a sweet sweet tooth.

And serve with lashings of honey cream. Yum!

¾ c honey
