  • Step 1

    In a food processor, combine eggs, sugar, olive oil, zests and juices. Process until incorporated.

  • Step 2

    In a separate mixing bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt.

  • Step 3

    Add dry ingredients to a food processor, about 1/3 at a time. Pulse only to combine, scraping down sides. Make sure to avoid over-mixing.

  • Step 4

    Generously grease bottom of the Ninja® multipurpose pan* (or a 20cm baking pan) with olive oil. Add batter to pan and place pan on reversible rack, making sure the rack is in the lower position.

  • Step 5

    Close the crisping lid; select ROAST, then set to 160°C. Set time to 43 minutes. Select START/STOP to begin. After 3 minutes, open lid and place rack with pan in pot. Close lid to start cooking, checking after 35 minutes. Cooking is complete when a skewer inserted into the center comes out clean.

  • Step 6

    When cooking is complete, carefully remove rack with pan from pot and place on a cooling rack. Allow cake to cool at least 15 minutes before removing from pan. Let cool completely before serving. Garnish with powdered sugar, if desired.
