Approximate preparation time: 20 minutes, plus 90 minutes for baking
nonstick cooking spray
¼ cup toasted pine nuts
1²⁄³ cups unbleached, all-purpose flour
¼ cup cornmeal
½ tablespoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
¾ cup (1½ sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature, cut into tablespoons
1 cup granulated sugar
½ teaspoon orange or lemon zest
4 large eggs, room temperature
¼ cup olive oil
½ tablespoon pure vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 325°F. Coat a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray.
Insert the large metal chopping blade into the large work bowl of the Cuisinart® Food Processor. Add the pine nuts and pulse 2 to 3 times, then process until they are ground. Add the flour, cornmeal, baking powder and salt and process to sift, about 10 seconds. Remove bowl and reserve.
Add the butter, sugar and zest to the large work bowl fitted with the large metal chopping blade; process until creamy, scraping the bowl as necessary. Combine the eggs, oil and extract together in a liquid measuring cup. With machine running, gradually add the egg mixture until incorporated. Add the dry ingredients evenly to the work bowl and pulse ingredients until just combined.
Pour batter into the prepared pan. Bake in the middle of the oven for 90 minutes or until a cake tester comes out clean.
