With my friends sometimes I joke about the bed&breakfast treatment they get when they sleep over: I have to be forgiven for the crazy cat in some way! But at the end it's not so much of a joke! With the due advise, if someone is coming to sleep over I prepare something for breakfast: pancakes are a rare treatment (only best friends get them! ;-P), but yeasty floury stuff or puddings are normal.
Friday night I attended with Deirdré (among others) to the Pandemia dinner in Milan, and as she leaves outside the city, she slept over. So I prepared those little plum cakes for Saturday morning (after the cat woke everybody up at 6 am sharp!)!
90 g cane sugar
120 g flour
2 pinches chemical yeast
100 g melted butter
1 grated apple
50 g of pistachio nuts
Preheat the oven at 180° C.
Whisk sugar and egg until foamy. Add flour, yeast, melted butter, grated apple and pistachio nuts and mix everything.
I cooked them in four little pans, 10x5 cm, for 30 minutes. To be sure they are cooked, pierce the centre with a toothpick: if it comes out clean and dry, they are cooked.
