Ricotta Coconut Cake {glutenfree}

Ricotta Coconut Cake {glutenfree}

I gave in to the flow of it all. I let myself be led by what happens in my day rather than striving for something that inevitably led to me being frustrated. And, allowing the space to come to me.

It is difficult, because, when I get that little window, all I want to do is sit down and have a cup of tea in peace. But instead, that is the time, I can feed myself in a rush, cook something for dinner, do laundry (and that included folding the clothes), get errands done that need relative quiet. After all that is done, I sometimes find time to cook and shoot something for the space. Those moments feel like magic!! Oh! they do, they do! Especially, when the fruit of the labor is cherished for longer than the labor itself lasted.

This cake is one of those wonderful fruits.

Giving Thanks, Little Feet and Time to Breathe...

Giving Thanks, Little Feet and Time to Breathe...

This cake is the first I have baked in 3 months! So, I felt I really must post it. And, it also helps that it is super easy to make :).

So, that’s it. I don’t have time to write more. But, do make this cake; because it is well worth relishing a slice or two of, in those stolen moments of peace and self-reflection :). This cake actually get better the next day and keep nicely for 3-4 days simply covered on the counter. This is thanks to the amount of butter and using the almond flour that makes for a richer, moister cake.

Whole Orange Polenta Cake

Whole Orange Polenta Cake

Would you eat something pretty or something tasty, again and again? :)

This cake is made using one of those Italian staples, Polenta. Their particular version of this yellow corn flour is extraordinarily finely ground, with more of a nut meal like texture than the grits we easily find in the States. This is what lends the corn flour to their delightful use in pastries. And, you can imagine it is much cheaper than fine ground flour. After all, polenta is an everyday savory staple and its use in sweet creations is an accessible extension, especially in the heartland of Tuscany that while beautiful is a harsh agrarian land!
