09/11/2020 Perfect combo of herbaceous olive oil and anise seed met with fresh, summer-sweet orange and lemon, here's the recipe for EVOO and Citrus Cake.

A delicious final course and goodness in disguise. Perfect combo of herbaceous olive oil and anise seed met with fresh, summer-sweet orange and lemon. The generous use of EVOO lends not only a superior, tender, fluffy texture over butter but superior health benefits. Evoo’s profile of antioxidant-rich biophenols, tocopherols, phytosterols, and squalene elevate this seemingly decadent treat to superfood status. Deceptively healthy and a mega people pleaser? Definitely my kind of “dessert”. Pair delectable desserts like this with even sweeter wines. In the spirit of an Italian- inspired dessert, steer toward Vin Santo.
