Citrus Cardamom Cake (Paelo)

Last week I spent the weekend at my parents house, and while being nice sometimes it gets a bit boring. And since food is my go to in every occasion (sad, angry, stressed…) I decided to bake this lovely cake from the local rose. One of my favorite holistic lifestyle blogs and the cake is so good! We finished the entire cake in one go

Cardamom Citrus Cake

1 cup olive oil
3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons organic sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon organic cardamom
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 eggs (at room temperature)
4 medium organic lemons zested
3 medium organic oranges zested
1 cup gluten free flour
1/2 cup almond meal
2 teaspoon baking powder
1 blood orange

Preheat the oven to 335°F (170°C). Oil your pan generously so the cake won’t stick.

Zest the citrus into a medium sized bowl. Add the olive oil, sugar and vanilla extract. Whisk in the eggs until combined. In the same bowl, add the flours, baking powder and cardamom and stir until combined.

Pour the batter into the baking mold. Peel the blood orange and slice into 1/4 inch rounds. Place on top of the cake.

Bake the cake until a tooth pick inserted comes out clean around 30 to 45 min.

Enjoy!

“Love Me Like I’m Not Made Of Stone”

There’s a heart I cannot hide
There’s a beat I can’t deny
When it sings, when it lies
when it cheats, when it bribes
There is a war inside my core
I hear it fight, I hear it roar
Go ahead, go ahead
Lay your head where it burns

Even though it hurts, even though it scars
Love me when it storms, love me when I fall
Every time it breaks, every time its torn
Love me like I’m not made of stone
Love me like I’m not made of stone
