Savoury Olive cake - Greek style

This cake is loaded with olives, fresh orange juice and plenty of herbs. I used a combination of 3 herbs but any combination of the following herbs can be used - cilantro, mint, parsley and basil. Just remember to use plenty of them 😁
The saltiness is enhanced by using all of the olive juice from the can or bottle. The fat content is pure olive oil. So this cake is olives in taste, olives in flavor and just an abundance of olives. Paprika brings in a sweet smoked flavor.
