Florentine Flat Cake - {Schiacciata Alla Fiorentina} 0 Picture


  • 3/4 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • Grated zest of 2 oranges


Servings 1


Step 1

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.

Lightly butter a 7 1/2- by 11 1/2-inch glass lasagne pan or similar pan and set aside.

Sift together the flour, salt, and baking powder. Set aside.

In a separate bowl with a hand mixer, beat together the eggs and sugar until thick and foamy. On low speed, beat in the olive oil and milk. Stir in the orange zest.

On low speed, beat the flour mixture into the egg mixture until the batter becomes smooth. It will be the consistency of pancake batter.

Pour the mixture into the prepared pan and bake for 35 to 40 minutes, or until the cake springs back when touched with your finger.

Remove the pan to a cooling rack and cool completely.

Turn the cake out onto a serving dish. Cut into squares or other shapes. This cake is delicious as is, but for a festive look, sprinkle the top completely with confectioners' sugar. Also try the cake topped with fresh fruit.

This recipe yields 1 cake.
