Orange cake

Preparation Time: 1 hour 30 min

Serves: 6 People

 

INGREDIENTS

For the cake: 

200g caster sugar 

Zest of an untreated orange 

3 eggs 

65g melted butter 

10cl full cream 

190g T45 flour 

1 pinch of salt 

½ packet of baking powder 

For the decoration: 

The juice of an orange 

15ml of water 

30g caster sugar 

90g Nutella® 

 

PREPARATION

1. Preheat the oven to 160°C. 

2. Butter a cake tin and cover it with sugar. Keep it cool while you prepare the cake. 

3. Beat the eggs and sugar in a mixer with the orange zest for 2 minutes in an electric mixer or in a pastry robot. Add the liquid cream, the pinch of salt and beat again. 

4. Then add the yeast and flour sifted together. Whisk for a few more minutes, add the melted butter and continue. 

5. Take the mold out of the fridge, pour the batter and bake for an hour. To check it is baked, you can insert the tip of a knife. It should come out dry.

6. While the cake is baking, prepare the syrup: heat the orange juice, sugar and water over low heat until boiling. Let boil for a minute and set aside. 

7. When the cake is cooked, let cool for a few minutes then unmold on a wire rack. Coat it with the still hot syrup. Leave to cool on the rack, then using the electronic dispenser and a spatula spread the Nutella® all over the cake and place a few orange peels on top.
