Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Liberally butter or grease an 8-inch round cake pan.
In a bowl, sift together, flour, cornmeal, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and coriander.
Whisk to combine.
In a large bowl, using a hand mixer, beat sugar and eggs together until light and fluffy, about 2-3 minutes.
Add pumpkin puree and milk, beat until combined.
With the mixer on VERY slowly drizzle (and I mean drizzle) in olive oil.
Add half of flour mixture to the pumpkin and olive oil mixture.
Beat just until combined.
Add the other half, repeat.
Pour batter into prepared cake pan and bake 25-30 minutes or until you stick a wooden skewer in the middle of the cake and it comes out mostly clean and just a few crumbs attached.
Let cool completely.
