I was looking for a recipe for a cake without having to use butter or eggs and…

a friend gave me this recipe.. I changed the rice flour with an organic all purpose flour and spelt flour and the muffins came out even better than I thought it would!

This is the recipe:

70 grams grams dark chocolate

150 grams organic all purpose flour

50 grams organic spelt flour

170 grams sugar

8 grams baking powder

30 grams cacao powder

250 grams milk

60 grams corn oil

1 tablespoon white wine vinegar

10 grams confectionary sugar

24 cm round baking tin

Parchment paper

Preheat oven at 180°C/15 minutes

Chop the dark chocolate. Set aside

Mix together the remaining ingredients + add the chopped chocolates

Pour batter into a 24 cm round baking tin (or in my case, I used 2 muffin tins good for 12 muffins for this cake recipe)

bake for 30 – 35 minutes at 180°C

Cool. Sprinkle with confectionary sugar before serving.

I tasted the muffin without sprinkling confectionary sugar on top and it tasted good!

Wishing everyone a wonderful Sunday!

 

 

 

Villa Lattes, Istrana, Province of Treviso

Autumn is the season of the year (for me) where the colors of the leaves, the taste of chestnuts and new wine “vin novo” and pumpkins have the power to ease the gloomy feeling that I feel during the cold and rainy days that marks the end of summer.

“Festa della Zucca” which means pumpkin festival outside Villa Lattes in the town of Istrana in the Province of Treviso.

Villa Lattes, Istrana

Another jewel in the Province of Treviso.

Inside the Villa is a collection of musical boxes and automatons which the former owner of the Villa, a Lawyer, Bruno Lattes, has left to the city of Treviso but now owned by the municipality of Istrana in the province of Treviso, Italy.

“Il Tamburino” the drummer

” La scimmia con il banjo” The monkey with the Banjo

“Il pagliaccio che suona l’Arpa”

Can you believe that this is a Music box chair?

Above are only some of the interesting things that you can see by visiting the villa and it’s museum.

Thank you to great men like Bruno Lattes, I can again say…life is indeed a very interesting journey.

Wishing everyone a fantastic weekend!
