Easter cake ... and Happy Easter!!









I made this Easter cake  especially for my Mom and Dad wedding Anniversary, you know she was sick the last times but I wanna make something special for her Anniversary, and I made  this Easter orange Cake.

I garnish with chopped meringue but you can make only with the orange cover cream.




Adapted from 

Ingredients
300 grams of all purpose flour
225 grams butter
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 tablespoon orange juice

Orange filling
225 grams icing sugar
200 grams butter (room temperature)
rind of 1 orange
1 tablespoon of orange juice
2 tablespoon of heavy cream

glace icing
300 grams icing sugar
orange juice (about 3 tablespoons)
orange colouring (optional)

to garnish
mini eggs



Method

Preheat oven to 180°c (350°F/gas4)
Grease and base line 2 sandwichs tins (about 20 cm)
Put butter and sugar into a mixing bowl and beat util soft and light.
Gradually beat in the eggs , adding a little of the flour-
Sieve the remaining flour with baking powder and add to the creamed mixture.
Mix well, Finally stir in the orange juice.
Divide the mixture evenly between the two tins.
hollowint it slightly in the centre.
Bake by 35 minutes or until golden brown and when gently touched it feels firm.
Turn onto a wire tray to cool.
Meanwhile make the filling by beating all the ingredients together until smoth and creamy.
Next made the icing by adding enough orange juice to the
icing sugarto make a spreadable icing. If using the orange colouring add at this point.
When cakes are cold  you can slice in three or four layers (I made three) Spread icing over the top and sides of cake.
Decorate with mini eggs or bunnies!

Cake de Pascua de Resurrección

















Ya no pensaba hacer nada para Pascua pero como mi mamá y mi papá estaban de aniversario de matrimonio pensé en hacer algo y salió esta torta decorada de Easter.
(como mi mamá ha estado enferma quise hacerle algo especial)
Obviamente es una torta que se puede hacer en cualquier fecha no sólo ahora.
Como va rellena con crema de naranja a los niños les encanta.
El bizcocho es más simple de los que hacemos siempre (con las claras batidas aparte) pero queda muy rica.
Feliz Pascua de Resurrección para todos!!
