I hope everyone is doing well and cooking and baking a lot! Today’s recipe is a cake, my go-to cake, or Bizcocho. That’s what we call it in Spain. This cake is very popular in Spain, and I swear this is the easiest cake ever! (My personal nickname is Easy Cake.) No frosting, no special tools … all you need are a bowl, a whisk and a mold for the cake. And it’s always good to have a little cake around the house.

I think the first time I made this cake I was 6 or 7 years old. Yup, it’s that easy. You can use a round mold or a square one, it doesn’t matter. The cake stays fresh for a couple of days, but I am telling you, you’ll eat it before that. You could also keep it in the fridge and it would last about 5 days.

I always dust powdered sugar on top of the cake, but you can get as creative as you want, and cover the cake with chocolate frosting, lemon frosting… Go crazy, or go easy and traditional and just use powdered sugar.

Hola y Bienvenido/a! Hello and Welcome! My name is Ivette and I am a dual citizen! Originally, I from Catalonia, Spain but in 2014 I moved to the United States and I currently live in Maryland with my husband Richard (number 1 taster, thank you!), my baby girl Beulah my rescue dig Vicky and my two (big!) cutie cats Pintxo & Pastifa. Full house! I love Spanish food. In Spain there is always something to celebrate, gathering with friends and family… We have THREE dishes at every meal! Yes, 3! You will have a first full dish like pasta and for the second dish you will have fish/meat and then dessert, and after dessert coffee…. When I am in Spain and get together with my family (there are 31 of us!), we can start lunch at 2:30pm and finish it at 7pm… I have always loved cooking. My grandmother it is a great, great cook and I think my love of cooking is because of her. When I was in college, my favorite breaks, were getting into the kitchen and cooking or baking something. I was able to escape the normal daily routine of law school. In this blog, I would like to share some Spanish recipes as well as other delicious recipes. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at joyofspanishcooking@gmail.com Bon profit!
