Summer is in full swing and that means some of my favorite fruit has arrived at the grocery store! And one of my all-time favorite fruit is peaches! I have been buying peaches by the bushel full and desperately eating them as fast as I can as they ripen. But, as with all fruit, there comes a point when I have to use them or lose them! And so, I gathered some leaves off my basil plant, grabbed a bottle of Filippo Berio extra virgin olive oil and made myself a peach, basil and olive oil coffee cake!

If you follow my blog at all, you know that I’m a fan of combining flavors together in all sorts of ways. And though it might sound a bit odd to be adding basil to a coffee cake, the green herbal scent of fresh basil works incredibly well with peaches. But it’s Fillipo Berio’s Extra Virgin Olive Oil that brings the whole thing together in the coffee cake. Not only does it lend a moist richness to the cake, but the subtle pepperiness of the oil adds a dimension that you couldn’t get with regular oil or butter.

If you haven’t had a chance to try Fillipo Berio Olive Oil, you’re in luck because they are currently traveling around the US on tour, stopping in major cities like Seattle, San Francisco, Austin, Nashville and Charleston to sample their olive oil. You can bounce to their website Following Fillipo to check out where they’ll be in your city. And while you’re there, enter their amazing sweepstakes for a chance to win an all-expense paid trip to Toscana Saporita Cooking School in Tuscany for two! How cool is that?

This is quite reminiscent of using basil in combination with lemon and chocolate in cookies that were made by Izzy Hozack in top with cinnamon and its the earthiness that is remarkable. I definitely would want to give this a shot!

I hope you make another recipe book Irvin – I missed my shot to try out recipes the last time and I was sad since I love to bake 🙁

Looks something really new! I will try it surely.
I too have replaced butter with olive oil in my cakes sometimes, one cannot make out the difference really!
