Italian Ciambellone Cake: a Breakfast Delight with Thermomix

Would you like to prepare a delicious Italian Ciambellone cake for breakfast or for snack time? From now on you won't need to buy those various industrial snacks and you can offer yourself and your friends a tasty and natural snack between meals.

For this recipe you need the same ingredients of many cakes: flour, sugar, eggs, butter, milk and baking powder which combined together create thousands of the recipes in our country.

The cimbellone cake reminds me of my past experience, when I used to bring a snack to school and my mother prepared this cake very often; I used to find it in my schoolbag, wrapped in cling-film. Sometimes it was hard for me not to have potato chips, industrial snacks, mini pizzas and so on but today I thank my mother and I'm doing the same thing as she did with my daughters. :-D

Is there anything better than your mum's ciambellone cake, or your grandmother's or that one of who has taken care of you in your childhood?

Having a Thermomix makes you save money and time, as I said many and many times, but it also makes you offer a healthy but not worst cooking!

If you want to prepare a good ciambellone cake for your loved ones, you must try this recipe!

It has been sent by Agata Gabriella Ursino Manola who has written to the Italian Facebook page fans: "It is a very good ciambellone cake you can eat in the morning, with your children and husband or whoever you want. I have taken the recipe from a website but it involved vegetable oil and water. I don't like using these things in cakes, so I replaced them. The result? It was a real delicacy you couldn't resist. It was high, soft and luscious."

For your breakfast I also suggest the Pancakes, the Double Colour Cake, the Milk Cake, the Sicilian Treccine, the Very Quick Yogurt Cake.

For your snack time you can prepare the Jam Biscuits, the Apple and Amaretto Liqueur Cake, the Oreo Cookies Milkshake, the Egg-Whites Cake, the Greek Yogurt Cake, the Traditional Italian Canestrelli Biscuits and the Corn Flakes Cookies.

You can also add some cocoa powder to colour it a bit, but I prefer it in white for my breakfast.
