Piovoso Giorni

It was a complete wash out weekend on both Saturday and Sunday. But, that just means it’s a good day to bake a cake, and that’s what we did!

Torta Mela (Apple Cake)
200 grams of sugar
2 big apples sliced –One for inside the cake and one for the top
100-120 grams of butter
3 eggs
Flour- she doesn’t measure this out, just by eye
Cinnamon- again no measurements
16 grams of baking powder- we use a packet that’s pre packaged

Mix sugar and butter together, then add the eggs and one sliced apple.
Gradually add flour to the mixture until the consistency is thick.
Add cinnamon and baking powder
Mix all together and pour into a buttered pan
Arrange sliced apples on top and place into the oven

Our cake took one hour and fifteen minutes to cook, but it was well worth the wait!
