Celebs such as Kourtney Kardashian, Kylie Jenner, Shay Mitchel and Addison Rae, to name but a few, have posted the aesthetically pleasing cake all over their Insta stories making it a viral sensation.

The “bomb ass olive oil cake” is made by Little House Confections, costs a whopping $42 and comes in an Instagram worthy brown cardboard box tied up with twine, all very pleasing, all very hipster.

Unfortunately for anyone who’s dying to drop a pretty penny on the cake, it is exclusive to LA. However, although the exact recipe has not been revealed, the company’s website divulges the ingredients which are : flour, extra virgin olive oil, fresh-squeezed oranges, orange zest, minimal sugar and eggs. Using these ingredients, the North American Olive Oil Association (yes, that’s a real thing), has come up with their own version of the recipe that you can try at home.

So, are you ready to get cooking?


  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons of orange juice (fresh squeezed if you can manage it)
  • 1 tablespoon orange zest
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • Confectioners’ sugar for dusting

And there you have it, Kourtney K, who?
