Simple olive-oil cake

Ingredients:

1 1/2 c. flour

1 c. sugar

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp kosher salt

2 large eggs

3/4 c whole milk

1/2 c olive oil

2 tsp orange zest

Preheat oven to 325. Oil and flour a 9-inch loaf pan. Whisk first 5 ingredients in a large bowl.

In another bowl, whisk eggs, milk, olive oil and orange zest to blend. Gradually whisk this into the flour mixture. Scrape into your loaf pan.

Bake about 60-65 minutes (mine took less) or until a tester inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean. Cool in pan, on rack, for 20 minutes, then cool completely on rack.

This would do well with a little orange or lemon chutney. Or even some whipped cream.
