Seville (Orange Olive Oil Cake)
Sweet, zesty, just right
Allow us to transport you to the Mediterranean with the Seville, an Orange Olive Oil Cake that is zesty and bright in flavor.
TASTING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR
Made with the freshest oranges, high quality extra virgin olive oil, and Triple Sec made with aged cognac and curaçao oranges, the Seville cake has an absolutely incredible citrus flavor. Inspired by the beauty of the Mediterranean, each bite shines so brightly in this moist cake, and will only get better with each day.
This cake has a beautiful balance in terms of soak, where it is not greasy, but just brilliantly moist. And the olive oil, despite it having such a distinct flavor, is wonderfully subtle.
PREPARATION AND PAIRINGS
Take our word for it: the older it is, the tastier it gets. This cake gets better with each day, and will reach its peak flavor (and what flavor!) on the fourth day from the day it is baked.
The Seville is not overly sweet, making it the perfect dessert to an elaborate and special dinner, where rich food is served. You can enjoy it either chilled, or at room temperature. Pair it with a Merlot, and you have yourself the best meal-ender.
Of course, you don’t have to wait for a nice dinner with all your friends to enjoy this cake. Have it for merienda, with a nice cup of tea. It’s absolutely perfect for when you’re wanting something sweet but not cloying. This’ll definitely hit the spot.
A HOME KITCHEN FULL OF HEART
Casa Saporzi’s name comes from the word “sapor,” which pertains to the substance in food that produces taste and flavor. It is also an amalgamation of the names of the owner’s cats. This dual meaning perfectly reflects what Casa Saporzi stands for: quality food made with all the love of a home kitchen.
It’s headed by a passionate home baker, trained by Gourmigz, who passed on his olive oil cake recipes. Much like with Gourmigz, quality is never sacrificed in Casa Saporzi, and every cake uses only the best ingredients. Every bite will leave you wanting more.
Keep olive oil cakes in an airtight container, either at room temperature or in the refrigerator. It will last for about 7 days at room temperature, and around 16 days in the refrigerator.
