Meet your new favorite cake!  

 

INGREDIENTS (SERVES 10)

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 tsp baking soda

1/4 tsp salt

1/2 cup Kosterina Extra Virgin Olive Oil

3/4 cup granulated sugar

3/4 cup buttermilk

1/4 cup orange juice

Zest from 1 orange

1/4 cup Grand Marnier

Whipped Cream

1/2 cup heavy whipping cream

1 Tbsp honey

Caramelized Topping

1/3 lb Figs, halved

3 Tbsp honey

2 Tbsp Kosterina Fig Balsamic Vinegar

 

INSTRUCTIONS

1. Preheat the oven to 350F & grease & line and 8 inch pan.

2. In a medium bowl whisk together the flour, baking soda & salt. Set aside.

3. In a large bowl whisk together the olive oil & sugar until they're well combined. Add the buttermilk, orange juice and zest and whisk until the mixture is smooth.

4. Fold in the dry ingredients just until combined & pour into the prepared pan. Bake for about 30 minutes. When the cake is fully baked it should release itself from the edges of the pan and spring back when you press the center.

5. Once the cake has cooled, place the heavy whipping cream in a deep bowl and use an electric mixer on high speed to beat the cream.

6. When the cream reaches stiff peaks, add the honey and mix just until combined.

7. Place the cream on top of the cooled cake.

8. In a medium saucepan, over medium-low heat, caramelize the figs, honey and balsamic vinegar for just 1-2 minutes. The sauce will thicken as it cools so don't cook it longer.

9. Allow the figs and sauce to cool a  little and then drizzle over the cake.
