Olive Oil and Nut Cake

Olive Oil and Nut Cake


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts (almonds, pecans, or walnuts work well)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour a 9-inch round cake pan.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, chopped nuts, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Mix well.
  3. In a separate mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, olive oil, milk, and vanilla extract.
  4. Slowly add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, mixing until just combined. Be careful not to overmix.
  5. Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan and smooth out the top.
  6. Bake for 35-40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.
  7. Allow the cake to cool in the pan for 10 minutes before removing it from the pan to cool completely on a wire rack.
  8. Once cooled, dust with powdered sugar or serve with a dollop of whipped cream. Enjoy!
