Torta Quattro Quarti

Sounds fancy, right? It’s Italian Pound Cake. AKA Four Quarters Cake.

Ingredients:

Equal weight of:

eggs
flour
sugar
butter

Seriously, get a kitchen scale. One bowl awesomeness forever.

First, add eggs to your mixing bowl. Determine the weight. (For a normal sized cake, use 5 eggs, which would be around 300 grams). Tare. Add same weight of sugar. Tare. Add same weight of butter. Tare. Add same weight of flour. Tare.

Add in whatever flavorings you like:

chopped fruit
chocolate chips
nuts
grated lemon or orange zest
some alcohol

Pour into pan. Bake 350 F until cooked all the way through (the time depends on how much you make, around 12 minutes for cupcakes, 45 for a loaf, 35 for a 9 inch cake layer).

Done and done.
