I received samples from Patricia and Paul for use in making the olive oil cake recipe. All opinions are my own.

Did you ever make an olive oil cake? They are wonderfully moist and incredibly flavorful. Plus they tend to get better and better as they sit. I was interested in working with infused olive oils to see how the flavor would carry so when Patricia and Paul offered me the opportunity to create a recipe using one of their flavored olive oils I was over the moon. An added bonus was being able to incorporate one of their wonderful white balsamic vinegars as well – I chose Golden Pineapple. Upside down cakes strike fear into some bakers but if you take your time and use parchment paper all should be well. The feeling you get when it unmolds right is phenomenal.  My last invention was a cherry vanilla upside down cake and it was yummy and pretty. If you want a real showstopper check out this caramelized pear upside down cake.

How Was the Upside Down Cake Recipe?

This was one tasty cake. The cornmeal adds a delightful flavor to the base cake and the topping is slightly tart due to the skin on the plums. I think this cake would work well with any of the tart fruits on top of it. It was the little hit of tart that really made the cake for me. I am going to get me a big ole bottle of the blood orange fused olive oil from Patricia and Paul so I can make this again.

I used what was left in my sample bottle to made a super delicious shrimp pasta salad for dinner the other night. It came together super quick and it was really good – I will share that recipe on Instagram later this week.
