ITALIAN MIMOSA CAKE

Ingredients (8 portions)

For the cake:

  • Large eggs 4
  • Sugar 45g
  • White flour 190g
  • 2% Milk 100ml
  • Baking powder 14g

For the Italian custard:

  • 2% Milk 600ml
  • Large eggs 3
  • Sugar 50g
  • White flour 40g

[1 portion = 265 cal]

Tips:

You can bake the “body” of the cake the night before and assemble it the day after.  Just cover it all up with a plastic wrap and keep it in the fridge.

To check if a cake is baked the easiest way it’s by using the toothpick method. Stick a toothpick into the cake. If it’s done the toothpick will come out clean.

Before serving the cake, you can dust it with powdered sugar. I personally prefer to leave the sugar on the side so people can choose to add it or not.

 

Italian Mimosa cake

A more simple version!

The yellow Mimosa flower is used as a symbol of Woman’s Day in Italy. This flower was chosen because of its ability to grow and blossom in unfavorable conditions. It mirrors the strength, sensibility, and sensitivity of women around the world. That’s why in Italy, on March 8th, people gift the women in their life with the Mimosa flower. 

The Mimosa cake it’s called like that because of its resemblance to the flower. It’s not an easy cake to bake if using the traditional recipe. That’s why I decided to write a post about my version of the Mimosa cake. It’s a lot faster and simple! Happy Woman’s Day!
