There is nothing better than a soft ring cake! A simple and natural dessert, ideal for breakfast or as a snack, to dip into milk or tea. Taste it with a thin layer of jam or a dusting of powdered sugar… you’ll fall in love with it! Let’s see together what ingredients we’ll need:
• 4 cups (500 g) of flour
• 2 ¼ sticks (250 g) of butter
• 1 pinch of salt
• 1/8 tsp (0,5 g) of vanilla powder
• 1 tbsp (16 g) of baking powder • 5 medium eggs
• 1 ½ cups (300 g) of sugar
• 1 cup (250 ml) of fresh whole milk
• the grated zest of 2 organic lemons
Well, let’s make together the ring cake:
In a bowl, put 2 ¼ sticks of softened butter and start beating, then add the vanilla… a pinch of salt and 1 ½ cups of sugar, and beat everything until foamy and light-coloured.
Once you have this mixture, add one egg at a time always beating. The eggs must be at room temperature.
This is how the mixture looks, now add the grated zest of 2 lemons and fold in the sifted flour and baking powder, alternating with the fresh milk.
And finally, here is the dough for the ring cake; now take a 10-inch tube pan, that has been greased with butter and floured; put in the dough and bake at 350°F (180°C) for at least 50 minutes.
