Chocolate Olive Oil Cake

Chocolate Olive Oil Cake! That's right, this is a healthy chocolate cake. Good news for calories watchers. But wait, it contain gluten and sugar, still not that much. Plus it is only one egg cake recipe to rock your chocolate cake experience. Not bad!

Chocolate Olive Oil Cake

I'm a oil-baking girl, who rarely use butter in cake baking. Pick up any cake or cupcake/muffins recipe from archive and you'll find oil in it rather than 'Oh, so popular butter'. I believe the moistness of oil in the cake batter keep the cake soft and fresh for long long time compare to butter. This chocolate olive oil cake recipe is moderated from these chocolate cupcakes. I tweak this recipe a bit and make a 7" round chocolate cake which turned out absolutely perfect, melt in the mouth texture, moist and rise like a good healthy sponge. You can opt to use canola oil in there, I also did and result was as smashing as the olive oil one. You can also frost this cake with any of your favorite frosting or just sift icing sugar on top as I did. What I'm trying to say is.. Pick your style!
