Ciambellone: a traditional Italian tea cake.

Ingredients for a 24 cm diameter cake mold

flour 00 350 g
butter 200 g
medium eggs 5
granulated sugar 210 g
baking powder for cakes 16 g
lemons the grated rind of 1
salt 2 g

Decoration: powdered sugar

 Making the donut is really easy.
 Start by putting the butter together with the sugar in a planetary equipped with a whisk.
 Keep the planetary in action for at least 10 minutes. In case you do not own it, you can also use normal electric whips, working the dough for the same time.
 Add whole eggs now: It is recommended that they should be incorporated one at a time. It will take around 15 minutes for this phase.
 Add the grated lemon peel and the pinch of salt. Continue manually, adding the baking powder and the sieved flour together. You will get a nice full-bodied mixture.
 Use butter and flour to prepare the pan, pour the mixture into it and cook in a preheated oven at 170° for 40 minutes.
 The ciambellone is ready: let it cool down, then serve it whole or sliced.
