can you substitute the cooking oil for extra virgin olive oil? Dietitian comment: yes I believe that will work. I've seen several cakes made with olive oil.

Must say always use butter and NOT margarine. Butter is natural while margarine is chemicals. We want to stay healthy so eat natural foods. I have not made this cake as yet but so do plan on it soon. Sounds so yummy.

This recipe is great, but for the frosting, DO NOT substitute margerine for butter! I made this mistake and it turned out very runny, I ended up making a glaze instead of frosting.
