We are going on a picnic and I am bringing…
This month the Creative Cooking Group’s theme was a picnic.
I was watching Rachel Khoo, Little Paris Kitchen on the Cooking Channel prepare this cake and had to make it, adapting it a bit.
9 ounces plain flour
large log of goat cheese, cut into small pieces
8-10 prunes, roughly chopped
3 ounces pistachios, roughly chopped
1/2 ounce baking powder
5 ounces olive oil
3 1/2 ounces milk
1 3/4 ounces plain yoghurt
1 teaspoon salt
Ground black pepper to taste
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
In a bowl, mix together the flour, goat cheese, prunes, pistachios and baking powder.
In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs until fluffy and pale in colour. Then gradually whisk in the oil, milk and yoghurt. Add the salt and black pepper. Fold the flour mixture into the whisked eggs. Try not to over-beat as this will make the end result tough (it’s better to under-mix). Pour the batter into the prepared tin.
Bake until a metal skewer inserted in the centre of the cake comes out clean, 30 to 40 minutes. Leave to cool in the tin, slice and serve.
