Sour cream is usually hard to get here in Sicily so when I found it in a Romanian shop, I immediately bought it. I also immediately made Russian varenyky because I love them with sour cream. You need 250 g of flour, 1 egg, a few tablespoons of milk and a bit of salt for the dough. For the filling you need potatoes, butter and onions.
I have a thing for spicy cakes...not spicy in the sense of hot, but with lots of spices, my favorites are cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger. The cake which I made today in fact is made with cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg. The ingredients are: 2 cups of flour; 1 teaspoon baking powder;1 teaspoon baking soda; half a teaspoon each of cloves and cinnamon; 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg. Mix them all up. Then in another bowl stir together half a cup of oil, ( I used olive oil but you can use any oil you like), 100 grams of powdered brown sugar - YES! It's finally available here in Sicily! Then add two eggs, a bit of raisins, pecans or walnuts, and half a chopped pear. Mix the dry ingredients with the wet ones. Line a small loaf pan with baking paper, and fill the pan with the cake mixture. Add slices of pear on top. Bake in a preheated oven 180° C for about 1 hour.

According to the weatherman, this year we are going to have an early spring. Actually here in Italy it already seems like spring, the sun is shining and the temperature is rising. It's almost summer!
