Cooking Class: Quesadilla CAKE from El Salvador

My wonderful stepmother is from El Salvador.
As a teenager, she made this wonderful cake that we ate for breakfast, snack, whenever.
The only problem is that it never lasts very long because it's super YUMMY.

It's called Quesadilla but it's truly a cake, not the mainstream quesadillas that are on every restuarant's appetizer menu.

We've since moved away and started our own family and during one of her visits, I asked if there was a recipe since we missed the cake so much.
Her is her version...which disappeared so fast that I couldn't snap a picture of it!

Salvadorian Quesadilla Cake (makes 2 cakes)
2 cups rice flour (can substitute regular flour, cake ends up being a little lighter)
1 1/2 cup sugar (she advised to start with 1 cup and taste for sweetness)
1 tsp vanilla
1 stick melted butter
16 oz sour cream
4 eggs
1/2 pint of heavy cream
1 Tbsp parmesan cheese
pinch of salt (which I forget all too often)
sesame seeds (optional)

Blend ingredients together. Pour into 2 round cake pans
Bake at 375 for about an hour or until bottom is browned and knife comes out clean.

let me know if you make it and what you think!
