EVOO Stories

Vacinata olive oil vegan sugar free cake

Written by Veronica Lavenia

Home baking is an act of love, good not only for mood but also for health if made with clean ingredients.

EVOO is also an excellent ally in the preparation of desserts. We already know many of its benefits and including it daily in our diet should be a duty, not just a pleasure.

Artisanal EVOO is precious for baking soft and fragrant cakes to be consumed at breakfast or as a snack during the day. Choosing a quality EVOO is the key for soft cakes (or other preparations), rich in nutritional properties.

This vegan cake, with no added sugars, other than fruit, is made with Vacinata Val D’Ama EVO oil. An EVOO that, while maintaining its personality, has delicate notes,ideal for a cake with a crunchy crust and a moist interior. The cake remains soft for a few days. Banana is a natural thickener and, as such, an ideal egg substitute.
