WHY YOU WILL LOVE THIS OLIVE OIL CAKE

  • Although not significantly lower in calories than regular cakes, olive oil cakes are healthier. And using olive oil in cakes adds a richness without an overpowering taste and it means that people with a non- or restricted-dairy diet can also enjoy them.
  • Being eggless, this Olive Oil Dry Fruits Cake is suitable for vegetarians or people with allergies.
  • Can double as your Christmas Fruits Cake
  • Loaded with bits and chunks of dry fruits
  • Perfect snack cake that can be enjoyed any time of the day
  • No Butter is used! Yay!!

So, in this Vanilla Cake with Dried Fruits, I used oil instead of butter (oil in cakes makes them stay fresh longer, makes the cakes spongier and less dense), Greek yogurt instead of eggs (some people have dietary restrictions on eggs)!

INGREDIENTS YOU WILL NEED TO MAKE VANILLA OLIVE OIL SNACK CAKE

  • Flour: all purpose flour is used in making this cake. It makes the cake soft and tender. You could use entirely wheat flour or a mixture of half plain flour and half whole wheat flour. I am sure the cake texture will be good either way.
  • Extra flour to coat the dried fruits
  • Cornstarch
  • Baking soda, Baking powder
  • Salt
  • Yogurt
  • Sugar
  • Olive oil: I used light olive oil in my cakes. You could use any flavorless oil like vegetable oil or canola oil. Melted butter can be used in this cake as well
  • Vanilla extract or orange extract or rose water
  • Dried fruits: You can use a mixture of any dried fruits as you prefer. I recommend using raisins, dates, tutti fruity.
  • Milk
