Here we are, well into February and baking the next delicious cake from Gâteau: The Surprising Simplicity of French Cakes - Olive Oil Cake with Citrus Zest. This one is a winner.
The texture is wonderful - soft and almost airy, but with substantial flavor. Not quite a pound cake. Much lighter. It has a tablespoon (!) of baking power and rises nicely.
You get a hint of citrus zest (orange and lemon) and the simplicity of the cake is its beauty (and deliciousness).
