Arbosano Summer Fruit Cake

We’re raving about this Arbosano Summer Fruit Cake! The Il Fusti Arbosano Olive Oil enhanced this recipe with a rich, sophisticated flavor that played off the sweetness of the blackberries, raspberries, and blueberries. Moist, flavorful, and irresistibly delicious, this cake was a great go-to treat for our recent sunny days!




  • 1 cup (8 fl. oz./250 ml) Il Fusti Arbosano Olive Oil, plus more for greasing
  • 2 cups (10 oz./315 g) all-purpose flour, sifted
  • 1 cup (8 oz./250 g) granulated sugar
  • 1 cup (7 oz./220 g) firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1 cup (8 fl. oz./250 ml) milk
  • 3 eggs
  • Grated zest of 1 lemon
  • 1/2 cup (2 oz./60 g) fresh blackberries, plus more for garnish
  • 1/2 cup (2 oz./60 g) fresh raspberries, plus more for garnish
  • 1/2 cup (2 oz./60 g) fresh blueberries, plus more for garnish
  • 1 nectarine, peeled, pitted and sliced (optional)
  • Confectioners’ sugar for dusting


  1. Preheat an oven to 350°F (180°C). Grease a 9-inch (23-cm) round cake pan, line the bottom of the pan with parchment paper, then grease the parchment.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, both sugars, the baking powder, and salt. In a large bowl, whisk together the  Il Fusti Arbosano Olive Oil,, milk, eggs, and lemon zest, then whisk in the flour mixture until combined. Using a rubber spatula, fold in the berries.
  3. Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean, about 1 hour. Transfer the pan to a wire rack and let cool for 10 minutes, then invert the cake onto the rack and let cool completely.
  4. Just before serving, dust the cake with confectioners’ sugar and garnish with berries and the nectarine slices.
