Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease and flour a medium glass baking dish.
  2. In a bowl, beat together margarine and 3 cups sugar until fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, mixing well. Combine 2 cups all-purpose flour, rice flour, and baking powder; add them alternately with the milk, stirring well between each addition. Slowly stir in Parmesan cheese. Transfer to the prepared baking dish.
  3. In a small bowl, mix the 1/2 cup sugar, 1/4 cup all-purpose flour, and sesame seeds. Sprinkle evenly over the batter in the cake pan.
  4. Bake 45 minutes in the preheated oven, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool completely, and cut into squares.

This is so good with a cup of coffee, I imagine that it would be nice served as a side to a savory dish as well. I prepared it in a removable bottom tart pan so it was very pretty to look at.

I was thrilled to find this recipe here, but it has some flaws. It doesn't specify what size pan to use and it was difficult to mix well when following the recipe. I used my standard 9x13 and it was far too much for the dish. It didn't cook right. I tried again, halving the recipe. I also modified the order for adding ingredients - I mixed the eggs into the butter/sugar. I combined the flours, cheese, and baking powder and mixed them in together, adding the milk last. It took 35 minutes to bake right. It was perfect. I uploaded pics. For fun, I used a biscuit-cutter to make pretty circles instead of cutting it into squares.

My boyfriend is from Honduras. Although he has never had this before he absolutely loved it!! I halved the recipe because there is only 2 of us. My only concern was the topping. Without any added butter to it.... The top if the cake had a bit of a white dusting to it. I'm assuming that the sugar sesame topping is suppose to be like a streusel. So next time I'm going to add some butter to it and see what happens. But even with that the taste was awesome so it still gets 5 stars!!!
