This delicious cake has a hint of orange and a slightly crunchy texture from cornmeal, is moist without being greasy, and is strongly flavored with olive oil. Try it with this tasty fruit compote, made with spiced Rioja wine.

Beverage pairing: La Caudrina Moscato d’Asti, Italy. The touch of rose and pear in this sweet wine from northern Italy will pleasantly match the hints of orange and pollen in the cake, while the gentle stream of bubbles will be a nice dance partner for the crunchiness of the cornmeal.
