Olive Oil Stone Fruit Cake – Dairy & Refined Sugar Free

Olive Oil & Stone Fruit Cake - PhotoI love using seasonal produce for yummy treats! This week I made a Dairy Free Olive Oil Stone Fruit Cake.  It is the perfect light summer dessert.

Stone Fruit Olive Oil Cake - PhotoIt is naturally sweetened with maple syrup and the olive oil makes it super moist.  I thought you would really taste the olive oil, but you do not!  Pictured is a mix of peaches and nectarines because that is what I had on hand, but feel free to use whichever you have/prefer or a different stone fruit – this would work well with plums as well as cherries too!

Dairy & Refine Sugar Free Peach & Nectarine Cake

I used 3 because my kids do not love cooked fruit.  Feel free to use more, I think this would be good with an extra peach mixed throughout the cake.  For the same reason, I layered the peaches on the top and bottom so that they were not overpowering.  You can pair it with your favorite dairy free (or regular) ice-cream if you want to make this an extra special treat but it is delicious on its own.
