6-8 people



  • Unsalted butter, for greasing the baking pan
  • 1 cup flour, plus more for dusting the baking pan
  • 1 cup finely ground almonds
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 Tablespoon fennel seeds
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 Tablespoon Fused Fennel Olive Oil


  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  • Use a little butter to grease the inside of an 8-inch cake pan, then dust with flour, shaking off the excess flour.
  • Combine the flour, ground almonds, sugar and baking powder in a large mixing bowl. Make a well in the center and add the milk, stirring until the batter is smooth.
  • Add the fennel seeds to the batter and mix in well.
  • Transfer the batter to the prepared cake pan, spreading it evenly.
  • Bake for 40-45 minutes until the cake springs back lightly when pressed.
  • Transfer to a wire rack to cool (in pan) before cutting. Top with whipped cream or fresh fruit, if desired.
