Cake – the word is believed to be coined from Old Norse ‘kaka’ during Middle English days in the 13th century. The round shape of cakes has come from ancient Greece to honour the Goddess of moon – Artemis.

 

Ancient Egyptians started making sweet breads using honey and soon unleavened bread became sweet-yeast bread and this modified bread product was initial cake. During 18th century the method of whipping eggs was used to make the cake rise.

In the 19th century with the invention of baking soda and then baking powder, availability of regulated temperature ovens and sugar becoming affordable the old version of cake took new shape and thus came into existence the modern cake. And now there are numerous varieties of cakes in the world with each culture having its speciality.

 

The first birthday cake was made in Germany in the 15th century to commemorate birthday of Jesus, as some scholars believe. Then cakes were mostly used for the birthdays of young kids and referring the celebration as Kinderfest. During this period only cakes started getting different shapes and Germans gave the world special kind of cake – the concept of cake being baked in layers – called Geburtstagorten.

During 17th century icing on cake came into existence along with layers and decorations only for the elite class due to the high price of ingredients and baking tools and it was during 18th century only – as a result of Industrial Revolution – icing on the cake became affordable for the common mass.

 

Some historians claim that placing the candles on cakes has come from Ancient Greeks, who believed that the smoke from the candles carried their prayers to the Gods. Today, we are still following the same tradition of placing candles on the cake as we believe, that if one blows out all the candles in one breath, whatever wished for will come true.

Love fried food? Try olive oil as it withstands the heat of the fryer or pan better than several other seed oils to yield healthier food.

 

Now you must be wondering - is olive oil good for you?

 

 

 

Olive-Oil

 

 

 

The researchers deep-and pan-fried raw potato pieces in four different refined oils – olive, corn, soybean and sunflower – and reused the oil 10 times.

 

 

Olives

 

 

They found that olive oil was the most stable oil for deep-frying at 320 and 374 degrees Fahrenheit, while sunflower oil degraded the fastest when pan-fried at 356 degrees Fahrenheit.

 

“For frying foods, olive oil maintains quality and nutrition better than seed oils,” said lead researcher Mohamed Bouaziz.

 

 

olives

 

 

Different oils have a range of physical, chemical and nutritional properties that can degrade when heated.

Some of these changes can lead to the formation of new compounds that are potentially toxic.

 

By-products of heating oil can also lower the nutritional value of the food being fried.

The study was reported in ACS’ Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry.

 

Isn’t it a good news for all the lovers of fried food like samosas, jalebis, kachoris, puris, french fries…?

 

Hang on, here are few lesser known benefits of including olive oil in your diet:

 

Olive oil is high in monounsaturated fatty acids therefore lowers the risk of stroke, heart diseases, high blood pressure (hypertension), depression, breast cancer risk…

 

Helps control bad cholesterol (LDL) and raise good cholesterol (HDL).

 

Olive oil contains tons of antioxidants which keep your skin, heart and hair healthy.

 

Its a great natural moisturizer, for a younger looking skin start consuming and applying this nature’s wonderful gift.

 

It improves your sex life too as all your body organs function properly.

 

Needless to say, its boosts your immunity, helps fight several types of cancers and aids in living longer. Not a big price for your longevity. RIGHT?

 

Food cooked in olive oil is much tastier as compared to normal oil.

 

Boosts brain power and thereby helps improve concentration.

 

U.S Food and Drug Administration recommends an individual should consume 2 tablespoons of olive oil daily.

 

Hope these factors are enough to convince you to switch to olive oil and include it in your daily diet for new happy and healthier YOU!!!
