Simple Lemon Olive Oil Cake Recipe-YUM!

Posted By: Terri
Category: Fashionable Food/Recipes

This weekend I got a major itch to bake. With a gentle suggestion from my friend Sydney, who inquired if I had ever made an Olive Oil cake -I was intrigued and motivated to give it a GO! To my surprise and delight-I found an easy peasy recipe (via Eat, Live,Run)  that is not only super simple but beyond delish.

As the saying goes..when life throws you lemons make lemonade OR perhaps a  Simple Lemon Olive Oil Cake.  I hope you find this recipe as yummy as I did and it puts some SPRING in your step!

Ingredients

4 large eggs

1 cup sugar

1/2 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil

2 1/2 to 3 Tablespoons lemon juice ( I use freshly squeezed)

1 cup flour

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp salt

Powdered Sugar

 

Pre -heat Oven to 350F *

Grease an 8 inch cake pan (line with wax paper) and  also grease wax paper

**OR using a Springform pan-Grease bottom  of pan ,line with wax paper  and grease wax paper as well.

Mix together: Eggs & Sugar at high speed for 5 to 7 minutes until light and fluffy

Using a large spatula gently fold in olive oil and lemon juice into egg mixture

With same spatula add in flour and baking powder and salt. (Do not over mix)

Pour cake batter into prepared pan and gently tap on a solid surface to remove some of the larger bubbles

Bake 40-45 minutes until top is a light brown and a toothpick comes out clean when inserted.

Remove from oven and let cool for 10 minutes.

Gently run a butter knife along edges of the cake to release it from pan.

Remove wax paper from bottom.

Cool completely and then sprinkle lightly with powdered sugar.

Enjoy!

Tadashi Shoji Resort 2020 -Spot ON!

Posted By: Terri
Category: Designer Spotlight

I needed a little dose of “happy” today and I thought best to go to one of my favorite uplifting remedies…VOGUE! Upon perusing the site I came upon this delightful collection by Tadashi Shoji ,that is covered in spots and  is oh so pretty. I realllllly needed some fashion Inspo other than  the usual lounge wear or at home “comfort clothing” that the internet seems to be deluged with as of late.  Someday …we will need to get up and go somewhere and a girl can never be to ready to look chic.

I feel so much better now and I hope you do too!  Click on any image to view the entire collection on Vogue.com. Enjoy!

Someday….

Posted By: Terri
Category: Monday Mantra

Happy Tuesday. I hope this finds you happy, healthy and managing this seemingly long and drawn out quarantine.  It’s the end of April and most of us have been in lock down since mid March with no sign of going back to any sort of “normal “until mid May.  One might say that we’re all getting a bit antsy to get back to some sort of normal.  Keeping busy and having a routine in place does help but  if you’re anything like me I’m sure you’d agree that we all yearn to get back to the freedom of living life more fully.

Today  try if you can to carve out some space to do at least one thing that brings you JOY. Yes, I said it joy!  Take a moment to stop and really savor something that makes you happy-be it a long walk, listening to your favorite song, talking to a special friend  or savoring a cup of coffee or tea -whatever it is-I hope it lifts your spirits  and reminds you that someday (hopefully sooner than later) things will return to a better and more productive way of life as we  once knew it. Be well, stay safe!
