Make a cake recipe full of healthy, potentially vegan, this is what I really want. Okay, I have to confess that it soon became a bit of a mess this story of the cake vegan. A too fat, a that didn’t want to climb…well, anyway… but after some modifications, I’ve finally found a texture that I liked. Good then it is sure, it is not as lightweight and slipping a brioche butter-classic, it is more dense and more filling, too, but the taste is really there.

The olive oil brings this little extra touch and goes perfectly with the dried apricots, then no do not change for an oil to be more neutral because it would be a shame. I was myself surprised by the taste, I who had never tested for brioche with olive oil.
