EN ESPAÑOL











Esta receta de cake con polenta y cranberries, es absolutamente delicioso y muy rápido de hacer, además los cranberries son muy buenos para la salud como todos los berries.
Los cranberries secos los compro en bolsas pequeñas en el JUMBO, puede haber en otras partes pero ahí he comprado los últimos.
Tambien se podría hacer con pasas o frutos secos.

  16. This is superb!! Its texture is certainly more interesting than a cake made just with ordinary flour. I love polenta flour added in cakes! And very nice with the addition of cranberries. They are widely available now in the UK. I love them. Have a nice weekend!

  20. Me encantan los cramberries y los uso hasta en salados, que delicia son.
    Siempre he querido probar una receta dulce con Polenta, como no la llevo en la sangre me cuesta hasta prepararla de manera normal.
    Se ve exquisito el queque.
    Besos.
