Olive Oil Cake

I had a wonderfully fluffy and moist slice of olive cake at La Colombe this week -- apparently it's supplied by a baker in Brooklyn who also supplies Glass Shop. Most excellent and with sugary top that tasted of fresh citrus zest! Delicious.

I'm also a fan of the olive oil cake at Abraco. Have yet to try the versions at Locanda Verde's bakery or Frankie's Sputino (available at Stumptown in the Ace Hotel). Yum!

  1. Love the olive oil cake at Abraco and the olive oil cookies are to die for. I wish they'd expand, but that would be the end of its charm.

    1. Bar Stuzzichini features one on the dessert menu.
