I saw the recipe today in the new AllerHande (a free magazine from Albert Heijn supermarket) and was tempted to try it out one day. When I have a proper oven :D In the meantime, I'm giving a chance for people with better baking skills, experience and facilities to try this recipe first *winking at Chica*
p.s. The recipe is freely translated from Dutch. Please forgive my mistakes - especially on baking terms (corrections are welcome!)
2 oranges, cleanly scrubbed
200 g flour, sieved
50 g cacao
200 g cold butter, in blocks
200 g white sugar
food processor, plastic foil, baking paper, cake form (diameter about 24 cm), filling (i.e. dried pods)
- Grate finely the skin (peel) of 1 orange.
- Mix in the food processor: flour, cacao and grated orange peel with 125 gr butter, 100 gr sugar and 1 egg until becoming a (sticky) dough. Pack in the plastic foil and leave in the fridge for 30 minutes.
- Heat the oven for 200 ºC.
- Roll out the dough with flour
- Cover the greased cake form with the dough. Spread baking paper over the dough and pour over the filling (to prevent the base of the cake from raising).
- Bake the cake base until lightbrown for 25 minutes.
- Squeeze out 1 orange and the lemon.
- Slice the grated orange into six pieces, halve and throw away the peel and seeds.
- Melt the rest of the butter in a pan.
- Whip in the food processor: 5 eggs and the citrus juice with 100 gr sugar and 1 knifepoint salt until frothy. Pour in the melted butter while the machine is turning.
- Take the cake form out of the oven, toss away the filling and baking paper. Pour the egg mix in the cake form and arrange the orange pieces over the mix.
- Bake the cake for 25-30 minutes until done.
