Olive Oil Chocolate Cake
- 1 and 1/2 cups of sugar
- 1 and 3/4 cups of SR flour
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla
- 2/3 cup of extra virgin olive oil (ideally use an oil that is light in flavour)
- 3 level tablespoons of baking cocoa
- 1/2 teaspoon bicarb soda
- 1 cup of milk
- 2 eggs
Ok - now this may well be the easiest cake in the world. First of all, preheat the oven to 180 degress celsius. Then grease and line a standard round cake tin.
Next up pop all the ingredients in your electric mixer and beat until well combined. Pour the mixture into the tin and cook for 45-50 minutes.
Ta da - Super easy.
I decided to try and pretend I was a food stylist when I was taking the photos for this post. I tried so hard. I had cute little plates, gorgeous silver teaspoons and lovely linen tea towels. Nothing I tried worked. All the photos looked terrible. Beyond terrible really. The whole thing got quite stressful, so I decided there was only one thing for it.
I gave in and ate the piece of cake instead. Then I took this photo.

Here is the only other photo that looks vaguely presentable.

One thing is for sure though. Farmgirl loved the whole cake baking process.

Seriously - get baking and make this cake. You won't regret it.
