When one Sunday afternoon you feel like something sweet is missing from your life, you just have to look around your pantry and pick up those ingredients that may match well into a cake. As Sundays in Berlin also means that 99.9% of the shops are closed, I am left with no option but to be creative enough to experience with my available repertoire. Which is not that bad, as I was able to create a beautiful cake, within a short amount of time, and based on some very simple yet tasty ingredients.
450 gr. white flour
8 gr. baking powder
16 gr. vanilla sugar
150 gr. brown sugar
1/4 tablespoon sea salt
1/4 cup sunflower oil
1/4 cup Rosewater
3 medium-sized eggs well beaten
2 tablespoon honey
Pre-heat the oven at 250C at least 15 minutes before starting the baking. Add the ingredients, one by one and mix well. Pour the content into an Aluminium pan - for me it was the easiest way as I didn't want to overload myself with too much cleaning work - and let it bake until done.
Preparation time: 15 minutes
Baking time: 1 hour or until ready
Serves: 16 medium-size pieces
You can have this easy light piece of cake with a cup of coffee, cappuccino or tea, or even a lemonade, in your garden or while reading a relaxing book in the afternoon. A good companion for the lunch boxes of your kids too, or to take them away while on a trip outdoors or a picnic.
