Made in Los Angeles: what is the olive oil cake?
Since I'm not a huge fan of cake in general, the description of this olive oil cake sounds delicious. It would be a perfect dessert for those who do not have a sweet tooth.
Although some may associate the name of olive oil cake with a heavy, rich, and overly greasy dessert, this BombAss olive oil cake is light, airy, and delicious.
If you're all about aesthetics, the exterior of this olive oil cake with rosemary might have caught your attention. The cake is moist and spongy inside, but if you're hungry and looking to partake in the pretty outer presentation then this treat is for you.
The ingredients are Extra Virgin Olive Oil, flour (gluten free or regular), fresh-squeezed oranges, orange zest, vanilla, sugar, eggs, baking powder, baking soda. As for most cakes, these ingredients don't tell the whole story: the taste is a lot more than a sum of its parts.
So, are you interested in the Kardashian's favorite cake? First, let me warn you that the cake is as good as it looks. Second, let me tell you the other important thing to keep in mind: a regular cake will cost $40 per cake, and a small cake is $14. There is no dairy in the cake, and they can also be made gluten-free.
Where to buy in Los Angeles
The Instagram-famous cake is called the BombAss Olive Oil cake, and the original cake raved about by the Kardashian clan can only be bought in Los Angeles(it will not ship) at Little House Confections.
The Cake was originally a project by two Los Angeles residents, Liz Roth and Jaymie Wisneski, who lost their employment last year in interior design and production during the stay-at-home orders.
They imagined they'd make 30 cakes and donate $100 to charity. However, the cake duo could not predict how popular these cakes would become on social media, especially when the doyennes of Instagram, the Kardashians, got involved.
The Little House Confessions website explains how they started the bakery:
Little House Confections was born in Los Angeles in April 2020 as a charitable campaign to raise money and awareness during COVID-19 for Covenant House of California. With an outpouring of community support, the little olive oil cake that could quickly blossomed into a fully functioning bakery.
You will be glad to know they kept the original pledge from the beginning and every month they contribute a part of their sales to a chosen charity.
