I know Thanksgiving and Chanukah don’t fall at the same time this year (or most years) like that EPIC Thanksgivukkah of 2013 but these two holidays fill my heart and stomach with so much happiness every single year! I mean, how can I even chose between 1 massive meal of turkey, duck, cranberry sauce, stuffing, mashed potatoes, green been casserole (should I go on?) and 8 nights of donuts, latkes and chocolate gelt??? I will not choose. I refuse! Instead, I am continuing the Thanksgivukkah tradition with this beautiful cake filled with fresh sage for Thanksgiving and olive oil for Chanukah. It’s quite the combo!
I used this handy dandy Sweet Creations Mini Loaf Pan to bake the most adorable little olive oil cakes! You can use one large loaf pan but these are way cuter, right? WAY cuter!
Do we need to talk about fried sage sprinkled with sugar? Do we????
A drizzle of orange icing (literally just orange juice mixed with powdered sugar) adds sweetness and major visual impact. And the sugary fried sage is the cherry on top!
