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.
