Remarks

If, like Louise, you really like the flavour of oats, you can increase the weight and take off the same weight of flour.

For an even more rustic flavour, use brown cane sugar.

  • Hello Daniela,
    No, baking powder is not needed for this recipe (this is the magic of quatre-quarts style cakes).
    But you can add some if you want, this will probably make the cake a bit more "light".
