pakoca cake

Wheat flour 150 g

Brown sugar 70 g

Butter 80 g

100 ml milk

Eggs 2

Baking powder 3 teaspoons

Salt to taste


Method

To prepare the Pakoca cake you must have two containers to mix the various components.

In the first container put flour, potato starch, brown sugar, baking powder and 100 g of peanuts made into flour with the pulverizer.

Mix everything well.

In the second container put the melted butter at room temperature, the two eggs and the milk.

Stir until a homogeneous liquid is obtained.

Associate the contents of the second container with the first and mix well until obtaining a cream.

Add the remaining peanuts to the cream and mix well.

In a buttered pan and sprinkled with flour, pour the cream slowly.

While pouring the cream you have to put a little salt in the cream, so that it is evenly distributed throughout the dough.

Put in pre-heated oven at 200 degrees for 3 minutes and then lower the temperature to 180 degrees.

The Pakoca cake will be ready after about 40 minutes.

The salt contained in the cake will have an “al dente” effect on the day of cooking, but as the days pass, if the room where it is stored is very wet, this effect will disappear.
