Extra virgin olive oil: the perfect substitute for genuine cakes without butter

5 reasons to use extra virgin olive oil for the making of your desserts.

  1. Olive oil is rich in antioxidants, it fights the natural aging of our cells, even when we allow ourselves an extra slice of that cake without butter.
  2. Extra virgin’s monounsaturated fats (the “good” ones our body needs) are able to lower cholesterol levels, thus protecting the cardiovascular system.
  3. Thanks to its specific chemical composition, extra virgin oil is a food that allows you to make light and digestible dishes, even for doughs such as a soft cake for breakfast.
  4. The fact that it is liquid makes the olive oil much more amalgamable in both sweet and savory doughs, which are homogeneous and without lumps. An essential feature in the preparation of light cakes without butter.
  5. Extra virgin olive oil gives baked desserts, especially desserts without butter, a greater fragrance: cakes prepared with olive oil are softer and more fragrant, and last longer.

For the making of the chocolate cake without butter, we used a light and delicate olive oil, with a balance taste; the ideal when you do not want to cover the flavor of the other ingredients.

Our “San Felice” extra virgin olive oil is the perfect candidate for this type of culinary activity. An extremely balanced olive oil in all its notes, with light and imperceptible hints of fruit, therefore ideal for baking our cake without butter.


Now you have all the most valid reasons to succeed in this enterprise of replacing butter with extra virgin olive oil: you just have to get to work, kneading, baking and enjoying your chocolate cake without butter!
