Torta sette vasetti

I wanted to share with you all a traditional Italian cake recipe. No measuring cups or teaspoons are required and it is quite normal that the Italians don’t  use an electrical mixer and everything is ”un po” and ”quanto basta”

You will measure the ingredients with a yogurt cup which equals 125ml or 1/2 cup after being emptied which you will use the yogurt in the recipe as well and will be filled with flour, sugar, oil for a total number of seven times. Thus the name ” Torta sette vasetti”

It is a perfect cake for the traditional Italian Breakfast, light and soft.
