  • Seeds of 1 vanilla pod

Method

Beat the eggs, sugar and vanilla seeds together until foamy. Beat in the rapeseed oil, then the Sauternes or apple juice. Sift the flour, baking powder and polenta over the top and fold in.

  1. These are individual cakes, but if you prefer you can use a 23cm cake tin and bake for 1 hour, until a skewer comes out clean. The cakes are delicious eaten warm from the oven, but they will also keep for up to 5 days in a sealed cake tin, or for a bit longer if kept in the fridge.
