not long ago, Ceci from Colombia asked me for something new to impress. i immediately recommended ROSE’S heavenly CAKES: Golden Lemon Almond Cake (page 37). making a GOOD butter cake is a bit challenging in Latin America. some adaptations need to be made to the local flours, milling, heat treating etc.
for beginners, Ceci used imported flour from the USA, and here the results. it baked perfectly on what she calls a “boat pan,” a large rectangular loaf pan.
i can hardly wait for Ceci’s results with her local flour and treatments. her first take was well accepted and everyone loved the melt in the mouth texture, yet not overly sweet or dense, of a well made butter tender take!
