Lemon Cake with Olive Oil

at
lemon-cake-olive-oil

When I started researching for this recipe I found that many of the lemon cakes had quite a bit of sugar and sometimes too much so I wanted to reduce the sugar a little bit.

I really like olive oil in cake, and of course you can control a lot how intense the flavour is by choosing a milder oil, but I like it quite intense and with the freshness of the lemons, I was quite happy with the results.
