Ingredients

For the Cake

  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup key lime juice
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3/4 cup extra virgin olive oil mild or fruity flavor

For the Drizzle

  • 1 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 teaspoons key lime juice

Instructions

For the Cake

  1. Preheat oven to 350 and prepare a 9 inch round cake pan by buttering it and lining the bottom with parchment paper, or by spraying it with a flour/shortening baking spray.
  2. In a medium sized bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt, then whisk until thoroughly combined. Set aside.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, combine the eggs and sugar. Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed until smooth and pale in color, about 5 minutes.
  4. Combine the lemon juice, milk, and vanilla in a pourable container. Add to the egg and sugar mixture a little at a time until smoothly combined.
  5. Add about a third of the flour mixture to the batter, and gently stir to combine. Add about half of the olive oil to the batter and stir gently to combine. Add half of the remaining flour mix and stir again. Add the remaining oil and stir again, then finish with the remaining flour mix and stir carefully until smooth.
  6. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and place the pan in the oven. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. The top will be almost entirely yellow with small brown dots just beginning to appear. Let cool completely.

For the Drizzle

  1. In a bowl, combine the condensed milk and the key lime juice and stir until smooth. When ready to serve the cake slices, drizzle some over each cake slice and serve immediately.
