Rosemary Olive Oil Teacakes


Desserts made with olive oil are great for Mediterranean Diet!

You’ll love this new addition to our recipe box. We also have other olive oil cakes in our collection that we think you’ll enjoy.

Thanks so much to our dear friend and herbalist, Brittany Wood Nickerson for contributing this great Rosemary Olive Oil Teacakes recipe. This is a healthier version of cake with the addition of olive oil and herbs. We tried it ourselves and it was truly delicious! An added benefit is that it is very easy; you could make it with your kids for a fun baking project.

This recipe calls for preparing the cake in a loaf pan. Alternatively, you can use a 10-inch Springform pan for a round cake. Dust it with confectionary sugar for some extra pizzazz.
