101RECIPES: GINSENG CAKE
All the energy of ginseng and plenty of taste with this simple, quick and delicious recipe!!! All you need is a cake pan with a diameter of 20-22 cm and a whisk.
Did you turn on the oven already? Go!
- 300 gr of 00 flour
- 150 gr of caster sugar
- 1 glass of peanut oil
- 50 gr of bitter cocoa
- 50 gr of sweetened cocoa
- 1 sachet of vanillin
- 1 sachet of baking powder
- 3 whole eggs
- 4 cups of soluble ginseng (i.e. 4 coffee cups); you can choose from here
- 1 pinch of salt
- To make your ginseng cake, put all the “powder” ingredients into a bowl, so the flour, cocoa, sugar, salt, baking powder and vanillin, and mix them with a spoon.
- Pour the oil, mixing well with the whisk, add the eggs and continue to mix; at this stage, you will have to put in a little effort because the mixture is not yet soft.
- But don’t worry, because now it’s time to pour the 4 cups of hot ginseng coffee that you will choose according to your taste and according to the machine with which you’re preparing it.
- Pour the ginseng into the bowl while it is still hot and mix well with the whisk. Now the dough will be nice and soft!
- At this point, pour this mixture into the cake pan and place in the oven (pre-heated) at 180°C for 50 minutes.
- Before finally removing from the oven, do the toothpick test, as always: insert a toothpick into the cake, and if it comes out dry, this means that the cake is well cooked (if not, leave it in the oven for a few more minutes).
- Once your ginseng cake is baked, let it cool, then remove it from the pan and place it on a cake plate.
- If you want to add a creative touch, sprinkle some icing sugar on top: you can use stencils to create shapes, or a simple strainer to create a smooth effect on the cake.
It’s great for everyone, especially when you want something that would satisfy your craving for good, wholesome and energetic food!
