Peasant cake with strawberry liqueur

My love for simple cakes is long-standing. Soft texture, uncomplicated preparation and the ability to take a piece with you are the three pillars of a successful cake, in my humble opinion. Of course, the beautiful cream pies are admirable, but do you want to eat more than one piece? There is no risk of overloading with this cake, it simply melts in the mouth, like a little cloud. 

A perfect pastry to take with you

When I embark on a day of hiking or skiing, there is one moment that I prefer among all: the afternoon snack, once the effort is over. To sit down with a tea, a piece of cake, a piece of fruit, to feel your muscles, to say to yourself that they have worked well and to let them rest: this relaxes me as much as a spa. But for that, you need to have something to eat, so I'm always looking for a cake recipe or a cake that holds up well enough to not fail once outside. This cake ticks all the boxes: it's good, simple, easy to transport. A recipe that is good for hiking. Oh, and I forgot: I flavored it with strawberry liqueur, which makes it also subtle...

  1. Hi Anna, I discovered your page and I love it!
    I am from Poland as well, I live in the States.
    I would love to make this cake but not sure what dl means in your recipe?

    • Hi Bozena,
      It's also my mother's name! So sweet...
      dl means deciliters. 2.4 dl= one cup.
      It's the same problem for me when I want to cook an American recipe, I always have to convert...
      Really incredible to read your comment from the other part of the globe! Thank you so much ?
      Have a wonderful baking session and let me know if you liked the cake!
