I haven't done much baking this summer since we have been too much "on the go", but this weekend we were all a bit housebound with minor colds (as well as watching the Olympics!) so a cake was desired. I have chosen to call this old fashioned Norwegian cake for "Old fashion Plain Coffee Cake" (Formkake) as I couldn't think what else to call it in English. I remember I found the recipe on the baking powder tin many years ago. It might still feature on the tin for all I know! This is double the original recipe. It kind of looks like a simple "Battenberg", I guess
The Professor is a man of simple tastes who thinks most cakes have too much 'going on' in them.
This is his favourite cake of all times and what the man wants, the man gets (some times)
250 gram butter
250 gram sugar
140 gram potato flour
140 gram plain flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
Whisk well the butter and sugar and add in the dry ingredients and the eggs alternate times.
Bake in the middle of the oven at 175 degrees for about 40 mins.
