Fanouropita (Cake For Lost Things)

[Photograph: Carrie Vasios]

This cake is traditionally made in Greece to honor Saint Fanourios, patron saint of lost things. It's great at breakfast: not too sweet and flavored with orange, cinnamon, and olive oil. And though it's called a cake, you will start with a product that has a consistency more like a dough than a batter, so don't worry if it's thick.

Notes: This cake is typically made in a plain circular springform pan, but I like to improve the visual aspect with a springform bundt pan. Use whatever you have. This citrus notes of this orange cake goes best with a fruity olive oil.
