Sometimes we want to treat ourselves to both a great coffee and a delicious treat. But it’s hard to figure out which treat would be best. One might be too sweet, the other not sweet enough, and you’ll be wondering if your coffee is going solo with forever. Luckily, Giada De Laurentiis’ new recipe might just be the treat you’ve been looking for for your morning coffee.
On May 5, De Laurentiis posted a delicious-looking snapshot of her new and easy cake recipe to her Instagram. She posted it with the caption: “When we asked @veronicadelaurentiis for her favorite recipe, this almond polenta cake was the answer! Rich in nutty flavor and light in texture, it’s the perfect accompaniment to tea or espresso. Download the #recipe in the profile link!”
The lightweight, fresh cake recipe calls for just under a dozen ingredients, including yellow cornmeal, almond paste, plain vanilla, and sour cream, just to name a few. With 15 minutes to prepare and less than 40 minutes to cook, this beginner-friendly cake will instantly become your go-to favorite for any occasion.
You start the recipe by preheating the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and greasing the round cake pan. In less than an hour, you can sprinkle the pan with sugar and enjoy it with the family.
