Aioli
Chipotle-Lime Aioli
Ingredients:
  • 1 cup SOOC Chipotle Olive Oil
  • 2 large egg yolks at room temperature**
  • 2 garlic cloves, smashed
  • 2 teaspoons sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
Directions:
  1. In the bowl of a food processor or blender jar, add the egg yolks, salt, garlic and lime juice.  Process until well combined.
  2. VERY SLOWLY, drop by drop, begin to drizzle in the Chipotle Olive Oil while the machine is running. Extreme patience must be taken with this slow process, as too much olive oil poured in at once will cause the sauce to break.
  3. Once the olive oil is completely poured in and emulsified, remove the aioli to a sealed container and refrigerate.

**This recipe contains raw egg yolks.  If you have a compromised immune system, you can use pasteurized eggs for this recipe.

Ingredients:

For The Cake 
2 1/2 cups unbleached all purpose flour
1 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 cup sour cream
2 large eggs
1/2 cup SOOC lemon olive oil + 1 tablespoon
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
2 cups washed and dried blueberries (1/2 cup reserved)

For the Simple Syrup Lemon Glazed Blueberries
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoon fresh lemon Juice or the juice of 1 large lemon

Directions:
Preheat the oven to 350 F.

Grease an 8 cup bundt pan with lemon olive oil, or 8- 1 cup mini-bundt pans.

In a large bowl, beat the sugar and eggs together until light yellow and thickened.  Add the lemon olive oil, lemon zest, vanilla, and sour cream.

In another bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients.  Add to the wet ingredients and whisk until no dry spots of flour remain.  Fold in the blueberries reserving 1/2 cup for decoration.

For the glaze, mix together the lemon juice and sugar in a microwave proof bowl.  Heat for 1 minute on high.  Whisk, and allow the glaze to sit until all the sugar is dissolved and the glaze has become transparent.

Bake the full size bundt pan for 45- 50 minutes, and the mini-bundt pans for 25-30 minutes or until a tester inserted in the center comes out clean.  Allow to coll for at least 20 minutes before inverting.

Allow the cake to cool fully. Add the blueberries to the cooled clear syrup and toss to coat.  Decorate the top/center of the bundt with the blueberries allow the glaze to run down the sides and soak into the cake.  Serve immediately.
