So…it’s really hard for me to bake in the apartments we rent.
Not everyone is a major foodie apparently!
I am having the time of my life, don’t kid yourself but I miss my kitchen, my tools and most of all, my tripod!
We bought a decent camera for our trip. (Sony NEX-5R).I would recommend it to everyone since it really does everything we want it to do but without a tripod and amazing light, its hard to take good and appealing food pictures.
I mostly cook at night (we are travelling after all!) so there goes my light! (I’m really jabbering about this as some form of excuse for my terrible pictures)
With all of that said, here’s a quick cake I managed to make with a cooking pot and a tart pan!
I know you’re probably saying “here she goes again with her hazelnuts!”. I do admit I have an obsession but I promise it’s going to be good!
I basically made a very moist vanilla cake and added roasted hazelnuts to it to give it that extra flavour.
It took me about 5-10 minutes to get the cake mixture ready and I was lacking all the proper tools needed to make a cake…So it should take you no time right?
This is the kind of recipe you make when you have guests coming over and you don’t really have anything to serve them for dessert. It’s quick and simple and really delicious!
Feel free to add any kind of toppings you want! I love chocolate, fresh berries, whipped cream and roasted hazelnuts but you could just as easily put caramel à la fleur de sel with exotic fruits like mangoes or pineapple with whipped mascarpone or even greek yogurt!
I baked this cake in a 12 inch glass tart pan but you can do it in a 8×8 square cake pan if you want. Make sure to test your cake every 5 minutes or so after you hit the 15 minute mark. If your cake is thick enough, you can cut out your cakelets with a cookie cutter and then slice them in half and make a fancy looking two layer dessert!
Food for thought!
