Cake Cauliflower

Cake Cauliflower

The Yotam Ottolenghi cookbooks they are my favorites when it comes to seeking inspiration. There are few times that I follow their recipes to the letter, but many times I adapt them to create simpler versions or simply that fit my pantry. This cauliflower cake is one such example.

El Cake Cauliflower enters through the eyes. It is a very simple cake to make and perfect to serve both at lunch and at dinner, accompanied by a green salad. You can also prepare it in advance and present it warm or cold to your liking!

The book version doubles the amounts I have used, perfect for a 15-inch pan and four generous servings. In addition, the original recipe incorporates some ingredients that I have substituted for others or eliminated. Still the result is ten. Test it!
