Plumcake alla vaniglia con gocce di cioccolato

Vanilla plumcake with chocolate chips:: easy recipe, delicious and fragrant for breakfast, with grated orange zest and Cointreau. I like very much the combination Orange-dark chocolate and use it often, in both sweet and savory in. The mild sweet perfume and Cointreau gives this taste a little’ more adult and less cloying than the usual pound cake. Obviously, if you prepare this dessert for your kids, forget the liquor and put some’ vanilla or just leave the scent of orange and chocolate.

Alternatively, you can use a doughnut mold and glaze the sweet, For example,, with chocolate. Or, you can use a normal cake tin, cut the cake in half and stuff it with orange jam, to enrich your breakfast taste. The trick to not getting chocolate chips to the bottom? It's very easy: just dip them lightly in flour and mix as little as possible, just two quick turns of spoon. When it starts getting cold I love waking up with the idea to turn the oven, prepare a simple cake, Like this vanilla plum cake with chocolate chips, and have all day the House that smells good. If you like simple and good cakes, have a look at VIDEO RECEIVED OF THE RICOTTA AND LIMONE CIAMBELLONE on my YouTube channel.

As a variation, you can add to the’dough for the plumcake dried fruits such as nuts or hazelnuts, or dehydrated fruit such as currors or blueberries. To find new ideas take a look at all my PLUMCAKE OF RECIPES. Have a good day!
