TRY THE RECIPE

You'll need

  • 200 g flour, 150 g butter
  • 100 g sugar, 3 eggs
  • 20 g heavy cream, 5 g grapeseed oil
  • 1 vanilla bean, 80 g pink pralines, 2 lemons
  • 5 g baking powder, 1 pinch of fleur de sel
Instructions
Melt the butter and let it cool to room temperature. Grate the lemons and add their juice; scrape the seeds from the vanilla bean. Chop your pralines. Weigh all your ingredients then mix them with a mixer (if you use a whisk, start with the eggs then add the sugar, flour, baking powder, cream, oil, and cooled melted butter, in that order).

Preheat your oven to 180°C. Pour the mixture into a greased cake tin and bake for around 30 minutes (insert the tip of a knife - if it comes out dry, this means your cake is done). Let cool and remove from the tin.
