I can't believe what a slow and laaaazy Sunday this has been. I have barely even touched my hooks today, (not good). I guess it has to do with all the eating that has been done 'round here in the last few days. Even though I am a vegetarian and don't really eat the turkey, it still has it's effects. Or maybe it's just a general case of food coma. Whatever the case may be, absolutely nothing has gotten done today. Except maybe for this post.
Actually, I did bake a lil ol cake yesterday. The recipe came frome one of my Chilean cook books. It's a twist on an old fashioned homey kinda cake. The kind my mother in law use to bake for her family as a special breakfast treat on Sabbath mornings.
I also want to share with you a couple of things that I've completed recently.
You know, those "just because I felt like it" little things.
Oh yes, and I won't forget to post my cake recipe for my friend Lorena.
|Something girlie for me!!!|
Queque casero (Homey cake)
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter
1 large egg
13/4 cups low protein flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 buttermilk ( I use 2%)
1 tspn lemon or orange zest
1 tspn vanilla extract
1/2 cup chopped pecans (optional)
1 tspn confectioners sugar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Mix the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the egg and mix well. Stir in the flour and baking powder, alternating with the buttermilk. Add the lemon/orange zest, vanilla and pecans, stir to mix.
Pour the batter into a well buttered and floured loaf pan, bake 40 to 45 minutes. insert tooth pick in center to check for doneness
Dust with powdered sugar if desired. cool well before slicing or it will fall apart like mine did. (we couldn't wait) :)
Note; this is a very thick batter, I like to add a bit more milk to make it creamier.
And that my dears just about sums up my Sunday.
Have a super great week everyone!!!!
P.S Let me know how it turns out Lory!!!
