Here’s a cake recipe good for every season and every moment of the day, from the morning breakfast to the afternoon tea, or the coffee break to the dinner dessert.
- 200gr white flour
- 80gr of polenta or “Maizena”
- 4 eggs
- 180gr sugar
- 100gr butter (I used the lactose free)
- 4-5 spoons of olive oil
- 4 spoonfuls of almond flakes
- 50gr of raisins or more if you like
- 1 glass of milk
- a pinch of salt
- 1 baking powder sachet (16gr)
- 1 grated lemon zest
PREPARATION (15-20 mins)
Mix the melted butter, the sugar and the oil into a bowl. Once the mix is smooth, add the 4 eggs, but add them one by one i.e. add the following one only when the previous egg has been well mixed.
Add the milk and the salt and mix with the mixer then the grated lemon zest and mix gently with a spatula. Then add the flour, the corn flour and the baking powder, mix everything and at the end add the raisins and the almond flakes.
Meanwhile switch the oven on at 180*C without fan or 155*C with the fan. You’ll know your oven and how it works. When hot enough, put the mix in a previously greased cake tin or covered by oven paper and make it bake for 50mins. Check regularly.
Something different for some indulgent moments, but not too sweet! Enjoy!
