Yesterday,some friends invited us for BBQ and a great play date for our little ones! I really love it when we gather all together,drinking wine and let the kids play !
In Greece,when somebody invite us,we always make either cake or cookies,as an appreciation. So,I made magdalenas. My mother used to make them when my brother and I used to be kids,and of course we made them disappear in one our..! Nice airy,soft cakes,different than the others! I made few modifications,though!
Here we go:
1 cup GF flour
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1/4. Tsp. salt
4 medium eggs
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup whole milk
1/4 cup white chocolate,melted
1 tsp. vanilla extract
Zest from one lemon
12 pitted cherries. If you don’t have pitted cherries,used raspberry. Is a great combination with the white chocolate!
Preheat the oven at 375 F.
In a medium bowl whisk the flour,baking powder and salt. In another medium bowl,beat the eggs,sugar and milk till it gets little bit thick and bubbly.
Pour the egg mixture into the dry ingredients and with a stand mixer, whisk well.
Add the white chocolate,the lemon zest and the vanilla.
In a small bowl,put the cherries and add little bit of sugar,just enough to coat the cherries. This will help the cherries to be more soft and caramelized. In a muffin tin add the the batter,only the 2/3 and put a cherry in each Magdalena.
Bake for 20 minutes,until they’re golden brown.
When they’re done,let them cool.
The aroma was all over the house,so sweet! Brought me such great childhood memories! The magdalenas were airy,fluffy,soft. Don’t be afraid that they will be overly sweet,they are just perfect! Sweet enough to satisfy your mouth! The lemon zest really freshens up the cake! Try it!
