Preheat the oven to 170℃. Warm the milk and dissolve the sugar into it.
Beat the eggs in a bowl, sift the flour into the eggs, and combine. Mix in the milk from Step 1 a little at a time. Finally, add the vanilla essence.
Grease a baking dish with butter, then pour the mixture from Step 2 into it through a strainer. Bake in the oven increased to 180 degrees Celsius for 35-40 minutes. Let cool, then enjoy!
Story Behind this Recipe
You can make this far breton (a traditional cake from the Brittany region in France) with items you have at home.
The method is real simple, so anyone can make it without fail!
There will be lumps in the batter, so pass it through a strainer before pouring it into the baking dish. I recommend 1 tablespoon of Cointreau in lieu of the vanilla essence to give a nice orangey taste. If you don't allow it to cool, it won't taste too great, so be sure to let it cool before eating.
