Torta di EVOO | EVOO Cake

Like pound cake, but much moister thanks to the EVOO, this simple cake is a great dessert, served alone or with a scoop of gelato or a medley of fresh berries spooned on top. I enjoy it most for breakfast with a frothy cappuccino. However, pairing this cake with a glass of bubbles takes it to a new level! I suggest Centanni Passerina Charmat Brut from the region of Le Marche.

In a bowl mix together the flour, baking powder, and salt, slowly beat into the egg mixture.
Add the EVOO and continue beating.
Fold in the almonds and citrus zest.
Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and bake for 50 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted into the center of the torta.
