Polenta cake - Dolce di polenta


Cornflour in Italy (especially in the North) is synonymous of winter. Because we use to make a hot cream called 'polenta', it could be creamy or thick it depends. Usually is served with sausages cooked in tomato sauce or a mix of melted cheeses. But it can be used also to make a wonderful cake called also 'Amorpolenta' where Amor means love.
Ingredients for 6 people
1 cup of polenta flour
1 cup of flour
1 stick of butter
1 1/2 cup of sugar
1 cup of chopped almonds
2 eggs
1 teaspoon of baking powder
2 tablespoons of rhum
1 tablespoon of vanilla extract
Reduce in cream with a food processor eggs, butter and sugar.Then add the two flours, baking powder, vanilla extact, chopped almonds, rhum. Mix well. Put the batter in a greased (with butter) plumcake tin. Put in the preheat oven at 350 F for 40 minutes. Let it cool and sprinkle with powdered sugar.

Versione Italiana - Italian version
