Pistachio cake with vanilla olive oil

It's been a long time since I wanted to bake an olive oil cake which really tastes olive oil. Mission accomplished with this cake and its rich flavor and tender texture. Its beautiful green color reminds me an ogre ... Would you like a piece of my Shrek cake ?

Pistachio cake with vanilla olive oil

makes a 26cm loaf pan
- 120g extra virgin olive oil
- 1 vanilla pod
- 150g sugar
- 3 eggs
- 30g pistachio butter (you can try this recipe cette recette)
- 100g ground pistachio
- 100g flour
- 1 tsp baking powder

the day before
Cut lengthwise your vanilla pod and scratch out all the seeds. Mix with olive oil in an airtight container and set aside all night.

Preheat oven to 180°C. Grease a 26cm loaf pan.

In a bowl, beat the sugar and eggs, until the mixture whitens. Add pistachio butter and vanilla olive oil (remove vanilla stick). 

In a separate bowl, sift pistachio, flour and baking powder together. Add to the wet mixture, briefly mix just until combined. Pour batter in the loaf pan and bake for about 35 minutes. Cool cake on a rack, then remove on a serving dish. The cake tastes really better the next day ... if you can wait !
