First, I went to the supermarket and read the ingredients' percentages of our favorite sobaos brand. Then, I did several easy mathematical operations to adapt the recipe to these percentages. After a few attempts, two to be completley honest, the third time was the good one.
I'd like to share this recipe, so you all can enjoy them. I hope you like them as much as my kids do.
*This cakes come from Santander, north of Spain. We eat them at breakfast and as a snack.
- 400 gr. butter, room temperature
- 350 gr. sugar
- 300 flour
- 5 eggs
- 8 gr. baking powder
- Beat butter and sugar until it turns whitish.
- Add eggs one at a time: first one, beat until fully incorporated, then another and so on till you've mixed them all.
- Mix flour and baking powder and add it to the butter mixture with a wooden spoon. Stir just enough, if you overstir, cake will harden.
- Turn oven on at 180º C.
- Line an oven sheet with parment paper. Pour dough in, even out and bake for 20 minutes.
- Let cool on the sheet. Cut the cake in bars. I find they are even better after resting the night.
