Preparation of the melon cake

  1. Clean the melon by removing the peel and seeds then cut it into small cubes . Keep the fruit aside and dedicate yourself to the preparation of the basic cake dough.
  2. Put the eggs and sugar in the mixer bowl, whisk until the mixture is soft and fluffy. Add the milk and flour a little at a time .
  3. Then add the baking powder and the flaked butter. Continue to knead so as to absorb the butter into the dough.
  4. Turn off the mixer and add the diced melon. Gently mix with a spatula then transfer the dough to a pan covered with baking paper.
  5. Roll out the dough with the help of the spatula then cook in a preheated oven for 40 minutes at 180 ° C. After this time, check that the cake is cooked by doing the classic toothpick test (if it comes out dry and clean from the center of the cake, the cake is cooked).
  6. Let the cake cool, transfer it to a cake pan or on a stand and sprinkle with icing sugar before tasting it!

In the same way you can make a soft and fragrant cake with white melon or winter melon. What changes? In the steps of the preparation essentially nothing, as it will be enough for you to simply replace the classic melon with orange pulp with the white one in equal quantities.


The cake prepared in this way can be stored at room temperature in a special container for 3-4 days after preparation.
