I benvenuti a San Polino

Our Airbnb seems to be taking off well. We have new guests for the weekend. We don’t offer breakfast but I do bake a welcome cake ( which is very common as breakfast in Italy). Libelle lekker.be has a great recipe.

Mix 4 eggs, 150 grams of melted butter, 120 grams of sugar, 50 grams of low fat Greek yogurt. Add 1 sachet of vanilla sugar, 1 teaspoon of baking powder, 50 grams of almond flour and 150 grams of self-

raising flour. Mix until you obtain a smooth and airy mixture ( you can make it more airy by splitting the eggs and adding the whipped egg whites at the end). Spread the dough in a spring form covered with baking powder. Spread 2 sliced apples ( with skin, without core) in the dough. Bake in the preheated oven at 170° for 40 minutes ( check with a pin).

Allow to cool down on a cooling grid and say hello to the new guests 😀.

PS I’m experimenting with olive oil instead of butter ( 120 grams of olive oil = 150 grams of melted butter) and using  less olive oil- 70 ml,  more yogurt -200 grams- less sugar-60 grams- and stevia equivalent to reduce the amount of kcal. It’s not quite the same, but still a very tasty afternoon delight.

  1. Yummy looking cake. Interesting about olive oil as substitute for butter. Is 120g olive oil same as 120ml? I often make cakes with sunflower oil also which has a neutral flavour so doesn’t conflict with other flavours if you don’t want that


    1. Hi, Marion. Ml is not the same as mg in amount. I think I could reduce the oil even more in amount and use more yogurt instead. Sunflower oil is probably even better, although I used the harvest of last year ( which is also less intense). Big hug. Veerle
