Optional garnishes:
To make the olive oil cake:
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and mist a 5-cup mini-bundt pan with non-stick spray.
  2. Place the flour, almond meal, sugar, lemon zest, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl and whisk to combine.
  3. Place the olive oil, milk, egg, sherry (if using), and almond extract in a smaller bowl, and whisk to combine.
  4. Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan and bake for 18 to 22 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the thickest part of a cake comes out clean.
  5. Cool in the pan for 20 minutes, then turn the cakes out onto a wire rack to cool completely.
For the garnish:
  1. Toss the blackberries, sugar, and sherry together in a small bowl to coat.
  2. Serve alongside the cakes, with a sprig of fresh rosemary.
  3. Dust with powdered sugar.
