3 cups plus 1 tablespoon of all purpose flour
1 tablespoon of baking powder
1/2 teaspoon of salt
4 large eggs
2 cups of granulated sugar
1 cup of sour cream
3/4 cup of Ultra Premium Extra Virgin Olive oil plus 1 tablespoon
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F
Generously grease the inside of a 10 inch bundt pan with UP Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Add a tablespoon of granulated sugar. Tilt and rotate the pan to evenly distribute the sugar in the bottom and sides of greased pan. Tap out any excess sugar
whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt and sift.
With an electric mixer beat the eggs until they are pale and light; slowly pour in the sugar while beating. Next whisk together the sour cream, UP Extra Virgin Olive Oil, vanilla and mix until incorporated.
Add the flour to the wet ingredients beating after each addition, scraping down bowl a couple of times in the process.
Bake in the center of the oven for 45 to 50 minutes until a cake tester or wooden skewer inserted into the middle of the cake comes out clean. Allow to cool for 10 minutes and then carefully invert onto a cooling rack to cool completely.
