Makes one 8-inch Cake

Perfect for breakfast or afternoon tea, this cake is savory, sweet, and sophisticated.

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. Liberally butter an 8-inch cake pan, and line the bottom with parchment paper.
  3. Place EVOO and egg yolks in a mixing bowl, whisk to combine then stir in sugar.
  4. Sift almond flour, “00” flour, smoked pepper powder, and Saffron & Salt together. Mix into the egg yolk and EVOO mixture.
  5. Place egg whites and cream of tartar in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment.
  6. Start mixing at a low setting, gradually increasing speed until egg whites form stiff peaks.
  7. Gently fold one-third of the meringue into the flour mixture until just mixed, continue adding the meringue one-third at a time until combined; don’t over-mix.
  8. Pour batter into the prepared cake pan and bake for 30-40 minutes until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Allow cooling before removing from pan.
  9. Transfer to a serving dish and dust with confectioner’s sugar.

Buon Apettito!
