Gluten-Free Olive Oil Loaf Cake with Yogurt Whipped Cream

Here’s a gluten-free olive oil cake made with almond flour, and scented with orange zest. The cake is topped with a Greek yogurt whipped cream and good with any fruit on top! This time I went with the classic strawberry. You could make it as a loaf, as I did below, or in a cake pan.

Gluten-Free Olive Oil Loaf with Yogurt Whipped Cream

If you haven’t noticed by now, I love olive oil cakes and baking with olive oil. There are a zillion olive oil based recipes on this site.

This is a very light, airy, and healthy-feeling gluten-free olive oil cake. And what i actually think is the tour de force of this whole thing is the GREEK YOGURT WHIPPED CREAM. It is truly life-changing!

Mixing heavy whipping and full-fat Greek yogurt makes for the most decadent, fluffy, tangy, tart topping to a healthy-feeling cake. It’s my new go-to cake topping.

A few pro tips!

To make this gluten-free olive oil cake, you’re going to want to whip the eggs a lot and really get a lot of air into them before folding in the additional wet ingredients and the dry ingredients.

And let the cake cool completely before topping with the glorious yogurt-whipped cream.
