"Italian yoghurt cake, or torta allo yogurt, or torta 7 vasetti. This cake is famously so easy that the French version (gâteau au yaourt) is called ‘the toddler cake’. It’s the first cake the French kids are taught to bake, at the age of 3 or thereabouts. I do hope they get to at least Ecole Elémentaire before they have a go at madeleines or macarons, otherwise I’ll have serious confidence issues. The Italians don’t bother teaching kids to bake – they all have nonnas after all who know and can do better. Torta 7 vasetti, or torta allo yogurt, sounds grown up enough and doesn’t mention toddlers. It’s still dead easy."

You had me at "cake." The ingredients in this may dissuade some but it's really very basic, hence the reason the youngest bakers can master it so easily. Some may wonder what "caster sugar" is. Basically, it's just superfine sugar and if you can't find it you can make it easily by pulsing regular sugar in a food processor. Also? Rose water? Not many have that on hand but it can sometimes be found in specialty food stores or even off-price retail stores in their gourmet food sections. I actually have rose water on hand and was so surprised to find it in this recipe. Adding to my recipe box for future (soon!) use.
