CAKE WITH DELICACIES
250 g vegetable butter
250 g flour
250 g sugar
1/2 tsp baking soda
250 g delicacies*
In a big bowl mix together (use a mixer) plant butter with sugar until it’s fluffy. Add yolks, one by one and mix until it’s bright and smooth. Add baking soda to flour, sift them and add to the buttery dough. Cut nuts, raisins and almonds* on quite big pieces and mix them with dough. In another bowl whip egg whites into a froth. Add froth into a dough very gentle, slowly and step by step and mix, but don’t use mixer. Fill form with graseproof paper and put the dough into it. Make a cut along in the middle of your cake with oiled knife. Bake it in 180 degrees for about 50 minutes. After this time check out if the cake is ready with a stick. If it’s necessary let it stay longer in the oven for a few minutes.
You can eat your cake after baking but it has the best taste when you wrap it in foil after baking and forget about it for 2 or 3 days :).
* I usually use hazel nuts, almonds, cashew nuts, raisins and dried apricot. You can use also candied fruits or orange zest. I don’t use it because these aren’t my favourite tastes.
