In the end, quieter times will come and, for the time being, go with a new recipe, and some more will fall before the summer break, I hope..

Today I propose a pie, as often happens, I will be richer if you take it the next day to prepare. It is then that has permeated the perfection of the aroma and taste of orange, and you can enjoy a really delicious sponge cake and. I tell you and how to prepare.


  1. We started developing the batter the cake. To do this we beat the yolks with half the sugar, orange rind and grated salt, until the dough is foamy.
  2. We set clear by adding, little by little, the remaining sugar, to reach the peaks.
  3. We incorporate the egg whites to the yolk mass and mix gently.
  4. Also add to the mass of buds cake crumbs , flour, almonds and butter, removing it all from the bottom up.
  5. We spread with butter mold that we will use. I used a half cylinder of 30 cm., but if you do not have a well, You can use the plum cake of a lifetime, for example, or whatever you may have elongated, as the final form will be more beautiful.
  6. Pour the cake batter in the oven and bake, in preheated oven at 190 º C, for about 40-45 minutes.
  7. Once out of the oven, let it cool slightly before unmolding and let stand on wire rack to cool completely.
  8. Spent to develop the orange bath to get drunk on cake. For this cast in a pan grated orange rind together with sugar and orange juice, stir and leave on medium heat until the syrup reduces to 1/3 its initial volume. Once out of the fire so let cool before adding the orange liqueur.
  9. With the help of a brush we spread the entire cake with orange bath and allowed to soak well.
  10. To make the coverage started doing a glaze. To do this we take icing sugar (4-6 cdas.) in a cup and we are adding orange liqueur (o zumo de naranja), very slowly, while stir with a spoon to form a paste which will cover the cake. (The thickness of the glaze you can do it more or less depending on how you like it.. As you can see, mine is not very thick). Finally we apply the glaze and, above, put the orange peel decorating to your taste.

Now you see how easy it is to prepare a snack or breakfast full of flavor, juicy, with a pinch of liquor (so you could skip Tami, of course ..). I hope you liked it.. See you soon !!
