Make a soft cake within minutes! It’s delicious, even without butter.

Have you ever found yourself craving dessert but lacking the time to prepare it? If so, a soft cake might be the perfect solution. Not only is it quick to make, but it also requires only a few simple ingredients, including milk and cornstarch for the cream.

Consuming milk regularly is beneficial for the body as it is rich in calcium and vitamin D, which help maintain strong bones and teeth. It is especially important as we age and can help prevent conditions like osteoporosis.

Cornstarch, on the other hand, is a gluten-free ingredient, making it ideal for individuals with intolerances. However, it is essential to ensure that none of the other ingredients contain gluten. Now, let’s take a look at the cake recipe!

– 130 g of 00 flour
– 90g stevia sweetener (or 180g caster sugar alternatively)
– 10 g of baking powder for cakes
– 5 g of vanilla
– 4 eggs
– 1 grated lemon zest
– Grated coconut for garnish

Cream Ingredients:
– 1 liter of milk
– 250 g light ricotta
– 90g stevia sweetener (or 180g caster sugar alternatively)
– 30 g of 00 flour
– 30 g cornstarch

– Ingredients for soaking
– 400 ml of cold milk

1. Start by cracking the eggs into a bowl, add the stevia sweetener (or sugar), and beat them with an electric mixer for 3 minutes.
2. Sift the flour and add it to the bowl along with the vanilla, baking powder, and lemon zest. Mix by hand until smooth and free of lumps.
3. Line a baking dish with baking paper, pour the batter into it, and spread it evenly. Bake in a preheated oven at 170°C for 14-15 minutes.
4. While the cake is baking, pour the milk into a saucepan with the stevia sweetener (or sugar), cornstarch, and flour. Mix by hand and bring to a boil. Then, add the ricotta and vanilla.
5. Mix the milk with the stevia sweetener (or sugar) separately and set it aside, as it will be used later for soaking.
6. Allow the cake base to cool, then turn it over onto a plate, remove the baking paper, moisten it with the soaking mixture, fill it with cream, and decorate it with coconut flakes.
7. Transfer the cake to the refrigerator, where it will rest and gain consistency for 2 hours. Optionally, sprinkle it with grated coconut before serving.

This soft cake is a delightful treat that can be prepared quickly using basic ingredients. Enjoy!
