Last week someone gave me a “Pentola Fornetto”, a kind of pan that you can use as oven. Well, I was truly curious to see if this is true so I started searching for a good recipe in the internet. I was unlucky, I wasted time and ingredients but I did not lose hope. If the comments left in the web were mostly positive ones, then I thought, if others can, I can. Suddenly, I remembered the old woman who gave this pan to me. I decided to call her and she willingly gave me her mother’s recipe which I would like to share with you.
Cake al caffè
150 grams zucchero
100 grams melted butter
1/2 cup brewed coffee
1 cup of milk
A pinch of salt
300 grams sifted flour
16 grams of baking powder
Melted butter + sugar + eggs . Beat well until creamy.
Add brewed coffee, milk and salt. Mix well.
Add sifted flour + sifted baking powder
Line baking pan with butter and flour
Put “Pentola Fornetto” over pan adaptor( ( this special pan have an adaptor. See foto)
Bake at medium flame for 5 minutes then lower flame and bake for 40 minutes. Do not open the pan before end of cooking time. Oh! I placed something heavy to make sure that the pan is tightly closed.
