Ingredients

Vanilla Olive Oil Cake Ingredients

  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 ⅓ cups extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 ¼ cups coconut cream
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Chai Latte Spice Mix Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoon ginger
  • 2 teaspoon cardamom
  • ½ teaspoon nutmeg

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 350F. Spray a 9-inch springform pan with coconut oil spray and line the bottom with parchment paper.
  • Whisk flour, coconut sugar, sea salt, baking soda, baking powder and chai latte spice mix together in a large bowl. In a separate large bowl, whisk the olive oil, coconut cream, vanilla extract and eggs. Slowly add the dry ingredients and whisk until just combined.
  • Pour the batter into the springform pan and bake for one hour. Cake is baked when a toothpick inserted into the top middle comes out clean.
  • Allow cake to cook in springform pan for 30 minutes. Invert the cake onto a cooling rack and allow to cool completely.
  • Sprinkle with powdered monk fruit sweetener and additional chai latte spice mix if desired.

Notes

I used a 9-inch springform pan coated with coconut oil cooking spray and parchment paper lining the bottom.  You could also try a regular cake pan or a bundt pan for a fancier look.
