Cake with candied fennel4 comments Mar 11th, 2010 | By Tobias | Category: Bread and Baking, Recipes
I had a fennel bulb left over and was more into baking then cooking. I decided to use the fennel in a rather unusual way. Fennel in a cake, I had never tried before but the thought was tempting. Smelling a fennel bulb allows you to imagine eating it sweet.
Preparation time: 20 minutes
baking time: 25 minutes
- 1 medium fennel bulb
- 1 cup of flour
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup of sugar
- baking powder
- a pinch of salt
- a pinch of cinnamon
- some olive oil
Wash and dice the fennel bulb. Melt half of the sugar in a small pot until it turns into Caramel. Add a cup of water and dissolve the caramel. Add the fennel and boil for 10 minutes.Remove and drain.
Mix the flour, the eggs and some olive oil in a blowl. Add the remaining sugar, a pinch of salt, the cinnamon, the baking powder and mix all well.
Now add the fennel and put the dough in to baking forms. I used small Muffin-like forms.
Bake in the preheated oven at 180 Degrees for 25 to 30 minutes.
