Ottolenghi's Apple and Olive Oil Cake with Maple Cream Cheese Icing

Apples and olive oil.  Fresh, light, healthy, summery but most of all, light (again).  Without the icing, this cake is a spectacular snack.  With the icing, this cake is a bundle of joy waiting to be embraced.

This cake is in fact an Ottolenghi invention.  I worked as a waitress at the Ottolenghi shop in Notting Hill for some time and I was always ready to rush to the kitchen and see if there were any broken pieces of the apple and olive oil cake to have a taste.
