Green cake with spinach and cream cheese frosting
ILIOS Spinach Cake



3 eggs

1 tsp vanilla

1 1/2 cups of sugar

1.5-2 cups of ILIOS spinach (thawed)

3/4 cups of ILIOS olive oil

2 tbsp of lemon juice

2 cups of flour (sifted)

3 tsp of baking powder

1/2 tsp of salt


1 250g block of cream cheese (room temperature)

2 cups of powdered sugar

1 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract

1 1/2 tbsp of milk


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°

  2. Use blender to puree the eggs, vanilla, sugar, lemon juice and spinach together until smooth.

  3. Remove the small cap from the blender (to open the hole) and slowly pour in the olive oil while the blender is at a low setting.

  4. Sift together all your dry ingredients and, using the little hole on the top of your blender, add them to the wet ingredients about 1/4 cup at a time. Use "pulse" setting to mix.

  5. Grease cake pan, line with parchment paper, lightly grease parchment paper and pour the batter in.

  6. Bake for approx. 30 minutes (check to see if cooked with toothpick at about 20 minutes).

  7. Let cool for at least 1 hour.

  8. For frosting, whisk all ingredients together. Use hand blender if possible to make it easier.

  9. Slather frosting all over your cake and enjoy!
