The Secret is: Do Not Turn On the Oven


 Shamaine sent me this photo.
She made at home the same cake we made at school.
She followed directions and... tips:

the secret for getting cakes as soft as this one is: turn on the oven only when the cake is inside. 
Low temperature!!



TORTA PINOLATA
PINE NUT CAKE




Ingredients:

200 gr. ( 7  oz) flour
200 gr. ( 7 oz) sugar
150 gr. ( 5 oz) butter
100 gr. ( 3 oz) pine nuts
1 egg
3 egg yolks
1 lemon
Salt
½ envelope of baking powder ( ½ teaspoon)

Cream the butter (leave some in order to grease the pan) and sugar together until soft and fluffy; add the flour, the eggs, a pinch of salt, the zest of one lemon and mix well.
Pour the mixture into a buttered and floured baking pan and distribute the pine nuts on top of the mixture, pressing lightly. Cook in a medium oven (160 °C) for around 50 minutes.


Good with wine caramel.
