There’s nothing more delicious first thing in the morning than the aroma of a freshly-baked cake made with Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Spain. And what could be nicer than getting up on Father’s Day with the kids and secretly making this mouth-watering cake that will bring a big smile to dad’s face?

This cake has a really incredible texture and flavour. Its sponginess is enhanced by the unique touch of Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Spain, which also makes it highly nutritious,since it is an excellent natural antioxidant, rich in oleic acid and vitamin E, thus helping to slow down the ageing of cell membranes, reduce blood pressure and protect the arteries and the heart.  Baking with Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Spain is the best way of ensuring a perfectly soft and succulent sponge cake.

Who can resist sweet bananas, cinnamon, dark chocolate and coconut, filling every mouthful with flavour and making this cake the perfect treat for breakfast on Father’s Day?

  5. Grease the cake tin with Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Spain and sprinkle with a little flour to help make it easier to remove the cake once baked. Pour the mixture into the cake tin and put in the preheated oven for 35 minutes. Do not open the oven during this time.

  6. After 35 minutes, and because every oven is different, check that the cake is done by inserting a toothpick into the centre. It should come out dry; if not, leave in the oven for a few more minutes.
