Apple cake

Apples are my favourite fruits to use in a dessert, whether pies or cakes. YesterdayI remembered about a cake my mum use to make when she had too many apples or did not have enough time to prepare a more elaborate one. So on Sunday morning I found myself with two apples in the fruit bowl and a great desire to have a sweet breakfast. But I didn’t want any biscuits or croissants, also because it was too cold to get to the closer coffee shop/new-agent to buy something. So I had to find a solution in house and I switch on my laptop to gather the recipes folder and came across this Apple cake that was ticking all the boxes: all the ingredients available in house, quick, easy and ideal for breakfast.



500g fo Apples

150g 00 flour

1tbs of baking powder

200g of sugar

2 eggs

1 glass of milk

50gr butter

A pinch of salt

A pinch of cinnamon for the apples


Start cutting the apples into thin slices. In the meantime switch on the at 180C. Beat the eggs and add in order: sugar, flour, salt, melted butter, flour, milk and in the end the baking powder. Put some baking paper in the selected baking tray (22cm large and must have high edges). Pour the batter in the tin and in the end add the apples on the top.

Bake at 180C degrees for 30 minutes. Before serving, sprinkle with icing sugar.

Pannacotta with peaches, an easy dessert!

Pannacotta is a classic Italian dessert. I loved it since I was a child, but I never thought was so easy to make. So last Sunday I was looking for a quick dessert to sweeten our afternoon, I finally got the inspiration browsing some menu of Italian restaurants. You’ll find this in many of them.



80 g sugar

4 dl single cream

12 g Fine leaf Gelatine

3 or 4 peaches

1 tbs brandy or any other sweet spirit.

Put the cream to boil, add the sugar (keep aside a tablespoon) and stir, when melted add the gelatin (which need to be soften previously in cold water). Stir to dissolve. Pour the mixture into a mold or molds in multiple-dose and placed in the refrigerator for a couple of hours. Meanwhile, cook for five minutes the peaches with sugar left out. Add the brandy and allow to cool. Pour the sauce over panna cotta and serve.
