Feta and Olive Oil Cakes Recipe

Feta and Olive Oil Cakes Recipe
Looking for something just a little bit different to make? How about this recipe which is a cross between a cake and a muffin? Today's guest post recipe is courtesy of Gaea. They would be perfect for any spring or holiday brunch!

Feta and Olive Oil Cakes Recipe

5.30 ounces (or a little less than ¾ cup) feta cheese
3/4 cup powdered sugar
2 1/4 Tbsp. honey
1/2 cup Gaea's Kalamata D.O.P. Greek Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 cup all-purpose flour
3.50 ounces (or a little less than ½ cup) ground almonds
1 tsp. baking powder
Gaea Pitted Kalamata olives, cut in half
Brown sugar for garnishing

Preheat oven to 350F. Process the cheese with the sugar and honey in a mixer until smooth. Add olive oil. Combine flour with the ground almonds and baking powder and add to bowl while mixing. Divide batter among 6 greased one-use individual cake molds and top each with half an olive. Sprinkle top of batter with brown sugar and bake for about 25 minutes.

Once done, remove and let sit for an additional 3-5 minutes before serving. They can be served warm or at room temperature.
