This simple Italian cake is usually served without a frosting or icing and is perfect for breakfast or with coffee/tea. The olive oil helps make the cake moist and gives it a bit of a citrus flavor. For this recipe, lemon and Powdered Rosemary are added for additional citrus-sweet flavors. It's a delicious, not too sweet treat, with a wonderful texture and a superior taste.
