- 2/3 cup olive oil
- 1 1/4 cup sugar
- 3 eggs

Heat the oven to 350°F. Grease a 9-inch springform pan lightly with butter, and line the bottom with parchment.
Whisk together the yogurt, olive oil, sugar, eggs, almond extract and vanilla. Add the flour, baking powder, soda, and salt right into the liquids and stir just until no lumps remain. Stir in chocolate chips and almonds.
Pour the batter into the cake pan and bake for 50 to 60 minutes, covering with foil at the end if the top is browning. When a tester comes out clean, transfer the cake to a cooling rack and let it cool for 10 minutes before removing it from the pan.
