The Roussille house was founded in 1863. The wine property is located in Libourdeau, in a village of Linars, located on a charming hillside, in the heart of the Charente. Marianne Roussille shares her sun cake recipe with us!

  • Ingredients :
  • - 250 g flour
  • – 15 cl of Virgin Sunflower oil signed Poitou Charente
  • – 15 cl of Pineau des Charentes Rosé
  • – seasonal fruits (raisins, figs, apricots, angelica, apples, pears…) or dried fruits
  • – 1 packet of baking powder
  • – 150 g of sugar
  • - 2 eggs


  • > In a bowl, mix the flour, baking powder and sugar.
    > Make a well and crack the eggs, mix gently, adding the Pineau des Charentes, then the virgin sunflower oil.
    > Gently pour into a buttered and floured cake tin.
    > Add the floured dried fruit or fresh fruit and gently incorporate them into the dough.
    > Bake for 45 minutes in the oven at 180° (thermostat 6/7), remove from the oven as soon as the cooking is finished.


If you want a more frothy cake, beat the egg whites and incorporate once your preparation is finished very gently so as not to make the whites fall.
