Le Gâteau Gourmand de Raphaël

Just like any mother says she loves all her children just as much I don't openly admit I have favourites but some guests just get an extra special place in my heart. In this particular case I believe I even got a little special place in theirs with a very simple recipe I found online (here for the dutch & flemish).

As a nutritionist I'm almost ashamed to share the ingredients but here they are: 200g butter (at room temperature)

200g sugar

8g vanilla sugar

250g flour

a little salt

1 egg (and 1 extra to brush onto the cake before it goes into the oven)


Preheat oven to 180°C. Whisk butter and sugar together until fluffy.

Add the egg and incorporate well.

Stir in the salt, vanilla sugar and flour and combine into a smooth mixture. Pour into a cake form with a diameter of about 24-26 cm, flatten with a spatula and brush with the egg wash.

Bake for about 25-30 minutes, let cool & enjoy!

PS: I recommend to cut the cake in tiny little pieces as it's the richest thing you'll have ever had!

Next time I try this recipe I'll be adding saffron too! <3
