Chocolate Olive Oil Cake

Looking for some cakes that without using butter? Here you go… this chocolate cake was made out of olive oil instead of butter!!! I found this recipe from and it is suitable for those who are concern about the diet like me. =D


2 eggs
100g sugar
150g self-raising flour
50g plain flour
50g cocoa powder
100g olive oil
60ml low-fat milk
Cocoa powder, to dust

What to do

(1) Preheat oven to 180°C. Brush a square cake pan with oil to grease. Line the base and sides with non-stick baking paper.

(2) Use an electric beater to beat the eggs and sugar in a small bowl until pale and creamy.

(3) Sift in the combined flours and cocoa powder. Fold until the mixture is almost combined. Add the olive oil and milk, and fold until combined.

(4) Spoon the cake mixture into the prepared pan and smooth the surface. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until crumbs cling to a skewer inserted into the centre of the cake.

(5) Set aside for 5 minutes to cool slightly before turning onto a wire rack to cool completely. Dust with cocoa powder to serve.

  1. How does anyone in my generation from the US make this recipe; any without the metric system?
