One of my favorite things about Chanukah is that it’s a holiday that occupies both weekday and Shabbat. There’s no Yom Tov overload, so you still have fun with the weeknights—trying new things, frying, switching off between meat and dairy parties—but you get that one Shabbat every year to really make it special.
Shabbat Chanukah is one of my favorite days of the year, because it’s fancy yet festive, unfussy yet fanciful. And that’s what all meals should be!

This cake is great for garnishing with raspberry, walnut, and whipped cream, but definitely can stand up to serving unadorned, too. It makes for a simple, well-executed dessert. A light, moist crumb highlights the quality olive oil.
