Even if this is not a food blog, I wanted to share a random recipe of an exquisite breakfast cake that my mum used to bake for me very often (let’s say, always!), and that nowadays is never missing in my kitchen for Minnie!
This is a very simple yet yummy recipe that everyone in the family, and especially children, can enjoy for breakfast … or in any other moment of the day! It’s kind of a loaf cake, very popular in Italy, which we call with an English name: plumcake (no plums involved, though!).
My Minnie has already turned one, and given the simplicity of the ingredients needed I’ve been baking this cake for her for quite a while now. She LOVES it with her milk in the morning, but also accompanied with some yogurt for her mid-afternoon snack. My husband loves it too, not to mention my puppy… who is always begging for some when one of us is attacking a piece! And sometimes, I also have some with a cup of fresh and cold milk before going to bed, it’s my special end-of-the-day treat while everyone else in the house is already sleeping.
Here is the recipe:
- 1 + 1/3 cups of ricotta (Italian soft cheese, very light yet tasty and fresh!)
- 2/3 cups of yogurt (pick the flavor you prefer: my favorites are vanilla and cereals)
- 1 egg
- 1 cup white flour
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 1 cup fructose (instead of regular sugar)
- 2 teaspoons of baking powder (I use the vanilla-flavored one)
You simply have to mix all the ingredients (adding them in no particular order) until you get a soft and equal dough, then bake in pre-heated oven for 35-40 minutes at 350F.
Sometimes, when I feel like I want a different taste in it, I randomly add either some pear or some apple. Also some banana is fine, kids will love its sweet taste!! When I don’t feel like sharing any of the entire loaf with anybody… I also add some chocolate chips… that’s the best!!!!!!!
Enjoy and Share the Love,
