Ingredients for Orange cake

Step by step instruction of cooking Orange cake

Шаг 1

Then the orange is cool (can be put under running cold water if in a hurry) and remove the pits.

Шаг 2

Now, the orange will make a puree - grind in a blender.

Шаг 3

Take the paste: proteins separated from the yolks. Shall pound the yolks with 3 tbsp sugar until obtaining a white, creamy mass.

Шаг 4

Will make a small digression: for the test can be used as ground almonds, and crackers, and range from sweet rolls to rye bread. So the flour in the recipe and is not provided with almonds or croutons it is replaced.
I did a kind of mix - took part of crushed crackers (I have a mixture of sponge cake left over from the cake, and the remnants of brown bread, self-made) and some almonds.

Шаг 5

Now add the yolks to the orange puree and almond/breadcrumbs.Mix well.

Шаг 6

Then whisk the whites with 2 tablespoons sugar until stable peaks.

Шаг 7

Enter the beaten egg whites into the yolk-sugar mixture and gently stir from the bottom up.

Шаг 8

Form (I have 24 cm) greased with butter, sprinkle with flour and lay out in her dough.

Шаг 9

Bake in pre-heated to 180-200 degree oven for about 40 minutes. Cool.

Шаг 10

For the cream whisk the cream with powdered sugar until stable peaks.
Here I added some syrup that I have left from boiling sugar tangerine slices (to do it not necessarily my initiative).

Шаг 11

The cooled cake cut into 2 parts. Just do it very carefully, because the cake is very soft and tender.

Шаг 12

Grease the bottom cake with cream.
I also soaked the cake (although it does not require - and so very soft), all the same tangerine syrup, for more Goodies and "sputum" biscuit. I think that the syrup came just in time.

Шаг 13

Then cover with a second Korzh and coat the pie (or cake?) completely.

Шаг 14

Decorate as desired. I have a chocolate enrobing slices, which I rubbed and sprinkled the sides of cake, and, in fact, own wedges.
Completely cover the cake with chocolate or use chocolate cream is not recommended, because the cream slightly orange smooth bitterness, and give the cake a more delicate flavor.

Шаг 15

You can give the cake to stand in the refrigerator, and you can start to eat and in an hour that we actually did.

Шаг 16

And here is the piece.

Шаг 17

Bon appetit!
