While visiting with my family and friends in California, I decided to bring Italy to them.. So…
yesterday afternoon, I decided to make Torta Variegato, a simple traditional Italian cake.
This is a super simple recipe that can be prepared in less than 10 minutes and as little as 7 ingredients, most of which youll probably have in your pantry already. No special store trip will be needed.
5/8 cup of white sugar
1/2 cup of yogurt – the thinner the better.. I made the mistake of buying a really thick yogurt so I had to add a bit of milk towards the end.
1/4 cup of olive oil or canola oil – I used Olive Oil.
2 cups of All purpose flour
A pinch of salt
8 grams of Baking powder with vanilla
30 grams of Cacao Powder
I used a 9 by 4 bread baking pan in 350 degree oven for 30/35 minutes.
Now, for the photo by photo, step by step photo recipe.
With the left over batter, mix 30 grams of Cacao powder and put on top of the white batter in the pan. I am so sorry, I forgot to take a photo of that.
Whether it be for the perfect Italian breakfast with a moka or a snack in the afternoon with friends, this plum cake will surely be delightful.
