First Cake From Scratch

Yesterday was my DH’s birthday!  As a part of the celebration, I made him an orange olive oil cake.  You may be wrinkling your nose up at the thought, but it’s really good!  It’s a French recipe that I got from Food Network.  Olive oil cakes are common in the south of France where olives and olive oils are plentiful.

Oh, and this is the first cake that I have made from scratch by myself!  I know, it’s just one layer, but I’m still proud of it.  It turned out beautifully and everyone who had some liked it.  The is not a sweet cake, but has just enough sugar in it to be called a dessert.
