simple cake for a snack

simple cake for a snack

And then ... you want a cake; but a simple cake, quick to prepare and without frills.

For example this here:
few ingredients and a mixture of fast and test errors.

Is the result? Great!

The basis for this mixture, after all, is the same that I use for another of my good cakes for all occasions; precisely apple pie for every day!

Here it is prepared in an even more simplified version that requires, as the only processing, the mixture of the various ingredients.

And to make everything even easier, the butter in the dough is added at the end and already melted.

What more do you want if you start to prepare?

In a mixer, or in the bowl with a whisk, fit well the eggs and absolutely at room temperature with the sugar until you get a nice cream swollen.

As you can see, the whipped egg whites are not added afterwards ...

Add the milk and then, as soon as it is incorporated, continue stirring, gradually pouring the flour already mixed with yeast, vanilla and lemon peel
(if you use vanilla yeast you can avoid adding vanilla).

Complete the whole adding the butter already melted over a very sweet flame (or for a couple of minutes in the microwave at the minimum), stir again a moment.

Pour into a baking pan lined with parchment paper; We could also butter and flour but, as written above, today we have little desire to work!

Bake at 170 ° for 40 '(static oven or hot air with only lower heat).

At the end of cooking, however, check that the cake is cooked well (usual method of the steccolino ...).

Sprinkle with powdered sugar and let cool on a wire rack.

Slicing and eating.

  • As an alternative to powdered sugar to be put at the end of cooking, you can sprinkle the dough with sugar - even better than raw sugar - before baking.
  • For a bigger pie to use a pan 26 cm diameter and increase the ingredients of a third.
