Cake de vainilla
(para recordar el verano)














Este cake de vainilla es demasiado rico, pienso que el bizcocho es delicioso por la mezcla de harina de trigo y harina de arroz!
Queda esponjoso y suave.
Le puse summer memories o para recordar el verano porque estas rosas de mi jardín solo las veo en esta época.
Es bonito en Invierno recordar cosas del verano (aunque a mí me encanta el invierno!

Ingredientes

180 gramos de mantequilla suavizada (temperatura ambiente)
2 cucharaditas extracto de vainilla
250 gramos de azúcar
3 huevos
185 gramos de harina con polvos de hornear
 70 gramos de harina de arroz
80 ml de leche

Preparación

Precalentar el horno a 180°c.
Enmantequillar un molde rectangular de 23 cm de largo aproximadamente y cubrir el fondo con papel mantequilla.
Batir los huevos, la mantequilla, el azúcar,las harinas con una batidora hasta tener una masa cremosa y consistente.
Batir unos 3 minutos.
Vaciar la mezcla en el molde y emparejar la superficie.
Cocinar por unos 40 minutos o hasta que se vea dorado y firme.
Retirar y dejar enfriar.
Desmoldar cuando esté frio. Dando vuelta y retirar el papel con cuidado.

  23. This is one of the prettiest things I have seen in a long time - just beautiful. And especially because it is FREEZING here. Minus 28C with the wind chill. Ack! This would be perfect for Valentine's Day too! I don't see the link you mentioned that you would post about edible flowers - maybe I am not looking properly...

  26. It is so sweet of you to send some gorgeous Summer flowers our way, Gloria. It is soooooo cold here today. I've always wanted to learn more about edible flowers so I could grow a garden that only had edible flowers. Perhaps one day:)

    Your Vanilla Summer Cake looks lovely. Oh how I wish I was there to share a piece with you and have a refreshing cup of tea:)

    Thank you so much for sharing, dear Gloria...

  30. Hola Gloria. No se qué escoger mejor si el Brazo de limón y merengue que me encanta o este rico bizcochito de vainilla que se ve delicado y muy rico, me llevo los dos para disfrutar de los dos en los mejores momentos.
    Quiero desearte un Feliz Año que acaba de empezar lleno de ilusiones, salud y felicidad para ti y tu familia.
    Besos.

  37. Gloria, I just love vanilla cake! I never thought to use rice flour in my cake, but sometimes I use cornstarch to make the cake lighter. Your roses are a wonderful decoration to the cake, but it will be 6 months before we have roses here again.

    Happy New Year!
