"With just a touch of sweetness, this olive oil cake has a hint of orange zest and five-spice powder. If you don't eat it all the first day, cut it into cubes and layer with whipped cream and oranges, or toast and slather with honey."

The kids loved this cake as much as I did!

It was great. Pretty much followed the directions as written. Even though I used half volume of very good quality olive oil (and the remainder was 365 organic evoo), I didn't think the olive oil...

Perfect with custard.

I really love this unusual and deliciously flavored bread. I've made it twice now and it's one of my favorite quickbreads.

I substituted the Orange zest for Lemon extract.

This sounds wonderful. I haven t made it, though. Can someone tell me what the Chinese 5 spice thing is. I have so many allergies I could never use a mix like that. Is it like cinnamon?
