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.
Ok this is called Torta sette (7) vasetti!!
1 vasetti = 125 ml = 1/2 cup
2 vasetti of white sugar
3 vasetti of all purpose flour
1 vasetti lemon flavored yogurt
1 vasetti Of oil ( I used olive oil)
16 grams of baking powder with vanilla flavoring.
Lemon zest of 1 lemon.
Salt qb ”quanto basta”
Serving size 6-8 people
25 minutes to prepare and 35 minutes to bake. Total time from start to finish is 1 hour.
