On Oct. 15, Rachael Ray Everyday magazine uploaded a delectable picture of Ray’s newest recipe for the holiday season, and our mouths cannot stop watering. The olive oil loaf cake is perfectly moist inside and topped with fresh strawberries and basil sugar.

How festive and pretty that?!

The post was captioned, “We’ve got a Saturday plan all lined up for you: this olive oil loaf cake with fresh strawberries and sprinkled with basil sugar will do your laundry, impress your family, and make the best coffee companion come Sunday morning. It’s the weekend; have dessert first!..”

We’re still making bread in 2021 (and yes, we think loaf cakes count). This recipe is quite easy, even for someone who’s quite new to baking. The recipe calls for kitchen basics like vanilla extract, eggs, buttermilk, and strawberries, to name a few.

The two-step recipe takes 90 minutes from start to finish, and it can serve your entire mom squad.

Also, if you’re not the biggest fan of strawberries, the recipe noted you can put in blueberries instead.
