Lemon Olive Oil Rosemary Cake/ Kolač od maslinovog ulja, limuna i ružmarina

I love baking cakes with ingredients that I have at home, ie. that I have in my kitchen already. And if it is with lemon, I am definitely in! If you are a lemon lover like me, also check out my Lemon Quinoa Cake, Lemon Cupcakes w/ Cream Cheese Topping or a simple but delicious Lemon Cake. There are many more that are to come, as I am in love with everything lemon in sweet treats :)  Today's recipe is very simple, the cake turned out flavourful, moist, a bit "different" but yet so tasty, I highly recommend it everyone to try!  You need just a few ingredients and the result is a lovely cake you can serve to your friends and family, they will enjoy every bite, I am sure! It is a simple and delicious cake, full of bright lemon flavour, made with olive oil instead of butter, wonderfully moist and soft, and by adding chopped, fresh rosemary it gets a nice Mediterranean touch. Wonderful, I tell you!! 


 

Lemon Olive Oil & Rosemary Cake

Inspired by Dobra Hrana. Adapted.


Ingredients 
(for 1 loaf  pan: *I have used a mini-loaf tin for 6 mini loaves):

  • juice + zests of 2 lemons
  • 120 ml plain yogurt
  • 200 grams of sugar 
  • 3 eggs
  • 220 grams of cake flour 
  • 150 ml Extra Virgin olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons of baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 2-3 teaspons of finely chopped, fresh rosemary

 Method:

Preheat oven to 180°C/ 350 F.  Coat loaf pan with parchment paper. 
Beat the eggs for 1-2- minutes. 
In a separate bowl combine lemon juice, yogurt, olive oil, then add beaten eggs. 
In another bowl add flour, baking powder, salt, chopped rosemary and sugar, combine well and then add to the yogurt-egg mixture.
Pour the batter into the loaf pan and bake 45-50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean. NOTE: If you are using mini-loaf pans like I did, the baking time reduces to only 13-15 minutes!



Oni koji me prate znaju da obožavam limun u desertima, u kolačima, volim sve "limunkasto", i uvijek rado isprobavam nove recepte s limunom. Ako ste i vi "limunoljubac", zanimat će vas možda i brzi kolač od limuna, cupcakesi od limuna ili meni jedan od najdražih, kolač od quinoe i limuna. Volim nepretenciozne, jednostavne kolače, koji svojom jednostavnošću a ujedno i savršenom okusu oduševljavaju, i ovaj kolač od limuna s maslinovim uljem i ružmarinom je baš takav kolač. Fin, sočan, mirisan, dodatak maslinovog ulja i svježeg ružmarina ovom kolaču daju mediteransku notu koju ja jako volim. Na recept sam naletjela na stranici "Dobra Hrana", i toplo preporučujem da ga isprobate! Uglavnom sam se držala originalnog recepta, uz  malu prilagodbu, preskočila sam postupak utrljavanja limuna prstima u šećer, samo sam ga pomiješala.





Kolač od limuna, maslinovog ulja i ružmarina


Sastojci:

  • 200 g šećera
  • 120 ml jogurta
  • sok i korica 2 limuna
  • 150 ml ekstra djevičanskog maslinovog ulja
  • 3 jaja 
  • 220 g brašna (glatko)
  • 2 žličice praška za pecivo
  • 2-3 žlice svježeg, isjeckanog ružmarina

Priprema:

Zagrijati pećnicu na 180°C. Obložiti kalup papirom za pečenje (koristila sam kalupiće za mini-kruh, dobila sam 6 komada + 2 muffina). Izmiksati jaja, otprilike 1-2 minute. U zasebnoj posudi izmiješati jogurt, limunov sok i koricu od limuna, i maslinovo ulje. Dodati jaja. U drugoj posudi izmiješati šećer, brašno, prašak za pecivo, sol, isjeckani ružmarin. Dodati u mješavinu tekućih satojaka, promiješati tek toliko da se sve sjedini.
Peći na 180°C 45-50 minuta, a ako uporijebite kalupiće kao ja trebaće samo otprilike 13-15 minuta dok ne porumene! Test s čačkalicom! 

Kolač je i idući dan divno mekan i sočan! Uz meni najdraži čaj od mente divota!

  4. Ovih dana razmisljam kako bih mogla da iskoristim limun koji sam nedavno kupila kako bih obogatila caj njegovom aromom. Recept mi je super i jednostavan, verujem da cu ga ubrzo isprobati:)

  17. Limun i menta ukusi i mirisi koje volim,ruzmarin mi više paše uz slanu kuhinju ali sve treba probati. Kolač izgleda za peticu sve sa zvjezdicom. :)
