This incredibly tender and fluffy cake is a fantastic accompaniment for any Italian dinner. The olive oil is the star of the show in this recipe, and we’ve added lemon juice and zest for a pop of citrusy flavor. For a perfect dinner and dessert combo, bake the cake at the same time alongside our Risotto Milanese or Butternut Squash & Sage Risotto.
