How did ya'll's weekends go? Mine was pretty great! Yesterday we visited a new church and had a nice time meeting new people!
So I was a little bit absent from the blog world last week.....just been really busy with school and stuff...plus I actually didn't have any new recipes/workouts to share. Sometimes it helps me to have a little something like that to get me going on a post and then I just sort of go off on tangents from there. :D
Anyway, I do happen to have a recipe for ya today...the world's easiest cake! It is plain though, so you can either frost it and serve as a dessert, or do what I did and leave it plain and serve with jelly, honey, butter, etc for breakfast! Anyway, I do want to warn you that the texture of this is not a traditional "cake" as it is actually a brazilian recipe and I got my basic recipe from here. Because of the condensed milk in the cake, it is almost like a flan consistency but with flour, if that makes any sense at all. Also, the batter is very thin.....I was pretty worried when I first put it in the oven, but it does bake nicely!
Condensed Milk Cake
- 1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk
- 2/3 cup + 3 T flour
- 1/2 tablespoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 4 eggs
- 3 1/2 tablespoons butter, melted
- Preheat your oven to 350. Butter a 9x9 baking pan, set aside.
- In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients. Beat very well until there are no lumps in the batter and everything has been incorporated.
- Pour batter (once it again, it should be runny!) into the prepared pan. Bake for 22-28 minutes or until the cake tests done with a toothpick.
- Remove from oven, let cool. Top with powdered sugar, frosting, more condensed milk, jelly, butter, etc! :D
This was a seriously easy cake to make! Like I said before, the texture is a little bit different, so for that reason I don't think I'll make this all the time, but for a treat every once in a while, it is nice! I even made a lemon curd this morning to go along with it (I woke up at 5:30 today for no reason and I bake when bored). It was actually my first time having lemon curd, and I loved it!!!! I'm already thinking about the other citrus flavors I could use in the recipe! :D
Easter is less than a week away. It is such an important time of the year. Not only is it a time to spend with friends and family, for Christians, it is also a time to remember Christ's death for us and His resurrection .
It is a special time, and I am definitely looking forward to having some quiet family time later on this week. Do you have any Easter plans?
Well, that's about it for today......
What are you up to this week?
