Best Ever Lemon and Olive Oil Cake

Last Saturday we decided to make paella for dinner and turned it into family dinner night. I was looking for something light and simple to make for dessert and turning to my epicurious phone app. I've had olive oil cakes a few times at restaurants, but had never tried to make one myself. I thought it would be a good balance to the rich and heavy paella. The best part was that I had all of the ingredients at home.

This recipe is so simple and the resulting cake is amazing. Based on the looks of the final cake, I thought that it would be really dense, but it was extremely light. This cake would be great with a berry compote and was delicious with the gelato that Van picked out.
