I was meant to do a bit of a brownie experiment this weekend – had planned it out perfectly except for one thing… I forgot to buy eggs. What the hoohay? So I had only 3 eggs on hand and a hankering to bake this evening and quickly pivoted from the brownie experiment plan to make this stunning cake I had seen on Food52’s instagram. It’s called Louisa’s Cake, an elegantly simple recipe to pull off yet yields such wonderful results.
It’s made with just a small bundle of ingredients, and chances are you will only need to run to the shops to get just two items – a fresh crunchy green apple and a tub of ricotta. It’s also so easy, that I made two this weekend! One for Kak Yati’s birthday, and another to bring to dinner at my sister-in-law’s place.
I’ll save the brownie experiment for another night this week, and I’d really still like to do it before I fly off this Thursday for my 30th birthday weekend getaway. Oh well, who needs sleep? I’m still in my 20s, I’m sure I could pull it off! Hehehe
