RECIPE - Five Fruits Pressed Olive Oil Cake
We think our Five Fruits Pressed Olive Oil is the first in the world! We make it by pressing organic oranges, mandarins, grapefruit, lemons and limes together with our fresh picked organic olives – and the flavour is amazing. A wonderful addition to our Agromato citrus olive oil range. Instead of using fresh oranges in this recipe, change it up by using lemons, mandarins or limes with the appropriate zest for a different tasting cake.
