Description

Nua cake, or Torta Nua, is a sponge cake that’s filled with two types of cream—one plain, the other chocolate--which are similar to what you find in a cannoli, meaning utterly delicious. The butterless cake relies on extra-virgin olive oil for moisture and a subtle hint of flavor. Once the batter is in the cake pan, the two creams are dolloped on top and the cake bakes up around them. It’s easy and unexpected, perfect for everyday or for casual entertaining.

Ingredients

360 grams all-purpose flour
300 grams sugar
5 eggs
40 milliliters extra-virgin olive oil
600 milliliters milk
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
lemon zest
50 grams milk chocolate
50 grams dark chocolate

1Preheat the oven to 170 degrees Celsius.
2Add 1 egg, 500 milliliters of milk, 120 grams of sugar, 60 grams of flour, and 1 teaspoon vanilla, and a small amount of lemon zest in a bowl. Mix well using an electric mixer on low speed.
3Pour the mixture into a saucepan and cook it on low heat stirring continuously until it becomes a thick cream.
4Allow the cream to cool and melt the two chocolates using a double boiler or in the microwave.
5Once the cream has cooled, divide it into two bowls.
