For today, I chose a recipe that can lighten both your soul and your eye. The small cakes shine with their bright, yellow colour like little suns. And they are easy to prepare.
Recently, I read that the yellow colour behaves like a capricious princess – it is mysterious, often misunderstood, jealous, warning, happy and holy as well… Do you like yellow?
Orange Sunny Cakes
200 g flour
100 g crystal sugar
pinch of salt
140 g butter
4 smaller oranges
110 g powdered sugar
125 ml crème fraîche
Make a crisp dough from flour, crystal sugar, salt, butter and 1 egg yolk, wrap it in food foil and leave to rest for 1 hour in the cold. Cut 8 slices from the oranges that are 5 mm thick. Squeeze out 100 ml of juice from the remaining oranges. Mix eggs, 1 egg yolk and powdered sugar with a whisk add the orange juice and cream. Roll out the dough and fill it into small cups of a cake tin, cutting off the remaining edges. Bake the empty cakes in the oven preheated to 200°C for 15 minutes, then reduce the temperature to 150°C. Fill the cakes with the filling, place an orange slice on the top of each cake and bake for another 25 minutes. Let them cool. Serve sprinkled with powdered sugar.
