consider a 30-cm-diameter cake pan
Winter spices are a real delight – a splendor of aromas and a characteristic spiciness. It’s not by accident that Scandinavian bakeries are among my favorites, especially on Christmas. The recipe I created thanks to Bakeland (Marit Hovland), a book that inspires. I bought it from the Edinburgh Book Fair. I did my own reading, of course. You will like it!
Products you need:
200 g unsalted butter (melted)
700 g white flour (sifted)
600 g sugar
3 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoons ground cardamom
2 teaspoons ground ginger (optionally, you could put more)
a pinch of salt
3 teaspoons baking soda
3 cups of fresh milk
1 cup of yoghurt (Greek style)
I mix all the ingredients in a large bowl.
Then put the mixture in a baking pan, the bottom of which I have previously lined with greased baking paper.
Bake in preheated oven at 200°C.
10-15 minutes after baking, reduce the oven to 180°C.
Bake it for at least 1 hour. I check with a wooden skewer if the cake is ready. No dough should stick on the skewer.
The dose is very big. Keep it in mind when choosing a mixing bowl and a baking tray.
If the cake is thicker, time for baking will last longer.
