Today we present you a simple cake, soft, fragrant and with a delicate flavor. Simple and very quick to prepare – you will just need one bowl – it has an almost impalpable and moist compactness, thanks to the use of fresh cream and no other fatty elements (butter or oil). Delicious and genuine, this dessert can be served simply sprinkled with a little powdered sugar, or stuffed with cream and fresh fruit, for a Sunday breakfast or a snack in good company. So let’s find out how to prepare it in the best way.

How to prepare the simple cake

In a bowl, collect the sugar and eggs (1). Whip with electric whisk until the mixture is light and fluffy.

Add the fresh cream while continuing to whip (2).

Incorporate the flour and baking powder, previously sifted, and mix with a spatula (3).

Pour the mixture into a 20 cm diameter mold, lined with a sheet of parchment paper (4).

Bake the cake in a preheated static oven at 170 degrees C for about 40 minutes, monitoring the level of browning. Remove from the oven, allow to cool and gently take it out of the mold (5).

Let the cake cool on a wire rack, then transfer it to a serving dish, sprinkle with icing sugar and serve in slices (6).


This simple cake can be preserved soft and fluffy under a glass bell jar for at least 4-5 days.
