Default Baking with Olive Oil

from the latest issue of Living: ue&resultNo=3

Walnut-Olive Oil Cake

Serves 8 to 10

Unsalted butter, for pan

1 1/2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/4 teaspoon coarse salt

3 large eggs, room temperature

3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons granulated sugar

1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil

1/3 cup Italian walnut liqueur, such as Nocello

3/4 cup walnut halves, toasted and finely chopped

Confectioners’ sugar, for dusting

Crème fraîche, for serving

Apple Compote, for serving

Candied Walnuts, for serving

1. Preheat oven to 350°. Generously butter a 9-inch round cake
pan; set aside. Sift flour, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl;
set aside. Put eggs in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the
whisk attachment; beat on high speed until light in color, about 2
minutes. Reduce speed to medium. Add granulated sugar; beat until
mixture is pale and thick, about 4 minutes. Reduce speed to low; mix in
oil and liqueur. Lightly fold in flour mixture in 3 batches using a
rubber spatula. Fold in toasted walnuts. Spread batter into prepared pan.

2. Bake cake until a cake tester inserted in center comes out
clean, 20 minutes. Let cool in pan on a wire rack 10 minutes. Turn out
cake onto rack to cool completely. Dust with confectioners sugar. Serve
with crème fraîche, apple compote, and candied walnuts.
