How to make the recipe Cornmeal Cake

  1. The first step is to sift the flour with the help of a sieve. Once sifted, add the yeast or baking powder.
  2. Preheat the oven to 356 degrees and line a mold with baking paper.
  3. To have the butter in ointment, you introduce it for 50 seconds at 500 w or medium temperature, this way it will be quite soft.
  4. In another container, combine the sugar and butter. We work this mixture until we achieve a homogeneous texture. Beat the eggs and add a little vanilla flavor and orange zest.
  5. Now we combine all the ingredients: flour, butter, milk and sugar. Work the mixture until it is perfectly integrated.
  6. Pour this dough into the mold previously lined with baking paper. Lift the mold about 5 centimeters and let it fall back, (we do this to eliminate air bubbles). Repeat this step two or three times.
  7. Cover the mold with aluminum foil (to prevent the top part from browning too much). Bake for 20 minutes and let it settle for five minutes.

Notes and Tips

Add 30 ml of Gran Marnier or Cointreau liquor to the dough if you want a more pronounced orange flavor and aroma. Did you like the recipe?
