    This is delicious, just delicious. I used a mix of green and olive-cured black olives. Final result was closer to a dense omelet or terrine than ‘cake.’ Very good, nonetheless. I plan to make it next with a mix of olives and sun-dried tomatoes. And of course DO NOT omit the dip, which is fabulous.

    I made this, it was really great! The texture reminds me of clafouti, dough was realy runny. My olives floated on the top of cake. I think tbsp measured flour is the reason, more flour would probably produce more thicnkess. But I really enjoyed it just the way it turned out. My sauce contained some rocket salad which suits perfect with eggy taste. Thanks for the recipe!

    Noir, I forgot to tell you that I made this last week and it was excellent. I made it for my Dad and he could not stop eating it. I had to slap his hand away so that other people could have a taste as well. Lol Thanks so much for a SUPERB olive cake!
