This is the best chocolate cake you will ever make, and it contains no eggs. Try it with my mocha glaze and mascarpone cream filling or with a chocolate sauce and just plain whipped cream! Either way you'll love my chocolate olive oil cake.
My favorite Chocolate Olive Oil Cake.
Everyone knows my roots are in Italian Cuisine, and when in doubt I always fall back to what has served me faithfully these many years.
The first time I ever had an olive oil cake, or for that matter, olive oil was in Mama Jeanette’s kitchen. She asked me what I wanted for dessert and I said a chocolate cake, she laughed and said: “sonny boy, Mama Jeanette has just the cake for you!”
When I saw her add the olive oil, I tried to imagine how I would ever be able to eat that cake…..sigh……but after my first bite, my doubts vanished and I ate half the cake that night.
It had been many years since I had that chocolate olive oil cake, and I did take some liberties with the recipe. I added a mascarpone filling and a mocha glaze.
The cake was excellent, as good as I remembered, and the mocha glaze was a nice addition. And the mascarpone cream went well with the chocolate. If you want to make a simpler cake, whipped cream would make a delicious filling.
I do hope you give this cake a try, I promise it will be love at first bite! And if you like cake as much as I do.
