You can make a breakfast cake without yeast and we will prove it to you! These: paradise cake, grandmother's cake, sponge cake and brownies

You went to the supermarket with the intention of preparing a cake for breakfast and a snack and you did not find the yeast?
In these very slow and crazy days, in fact many people have thought of taking refuge in the kitchen to bring some joy and light-heartedness to the table. And what makes you happier than a cake?
Don't worry, we give you more than one solution to prepare one cake even if you don't have yeast.

Yeast-free but leavened

You can prepare many desserts without the yeast: cheesecake, creme caramel, ice cream, pudding, biscuits and many other enjoyable things.
But if it is the cake you want, and not just any cake but a soft breakfast cake, one that you remember grandmother's cake and who knows about home comfort food, we will give you some ideas to make it soft and leavened, but without leavening agents.
Let's start immediately from a classic: the paradise cake.

Recipe of the paradise cake without yeast


120 g of 00 flour
120 g of potato starch
120 g of sugar
50 g of butter
3 eggs
3 yolks
1 lemon


First, whisk the whole eggs and sugar in a planetary mixer or with electric whisk for a long time.
It will take about 10 minutes to obtain a super frothy and very light mixture.
Then add the yolks and the grated lemon zest and whisk again.
Meanwhile, let the butter melt separately and once cold add it to the mixture.
Finally, mix the well-sifted flour with the potato starch to the rest.
When adding flour, be careful not to disassemble the eggs you have beaten before. Whisk as long as possible to obtain a soft and high cake.
Pour the mixture into a buttered and floured cake mold and bake in a hot ventilated oven at 160 ° for 40 minutes.

Variant with fruit

You can turn the paradise cake into an apple or pear cake.
Just add the fruit cut into thin slices in the dough.
In order not to dismantle the mixture, you can work in layers and then start with a little dough on the cake tin, continue with thin slices of fruit and then cover with other dough and again with fruit until all the ingredients are finished.
Complete with a sprinkling of sugar and always bake at 160 ° for 40 minutes.

Sponge cake

Sponge cake is also a cake without leavening and also without oil and butter, have you ever thought about it?
Preparing it is simple, but you need to pay attention to cooking to keep it moist and spongy.
First whip 5 eggs at room temperature with a pinch of salt and 150 g of sugar.
Also in this case, use a planetary mixer for convenience because the whips will have to work for at least 10 minutes.
Then add 75 g of flour and 75 g of well sifted and whipped potato starch again.
Pour the mixture into a buttered and floured mold and bake at 160 ° in a hot static oven for 50 minutes, in a low oven shelf.
The sponge cake is already so good, perhaps stuffed with jam, cream or hazelnut spread.
But you can also use it to prepare other desserts, for example an English soup, a tiramisu, a zuccotto, or a birthday cake of course because even if you stay at home, birthdays are celebrated!


If you prefer a very tasty and super buttery breakfast cake, then brownies are for you.
To prepare them, however, you must have chocolate, dark or even white if you want to prepare the Blondies.
Melt 250 g of dark chocolate with 135 g of butter in a saucepan and let the mixture cool.
Separately whip 4 eggs with 250 g of sugar and then add the chocolate and butter.
Mix everything with 140 g of sifted flour and a pinch of salt and if you want add chopped walnuts or hazelnuts.
Bake in a buttered and floured square pan and bake at 180 degrees in a static oven for 20 minutes.
