Orange Almond Cake With Coffee Cream

Once I entered 2016, I decided to bake more. I remember once I got married, I had taken up baking and I loved it. I collected baking pans and baking goods and try to make new things every day. But eventually I lost touch. So, my thoughts were why not bring back something I loved so much and then share them here. And to know what you thought of it.

Recipe

The Cake
| In a bowl cream the butter, then add sugar and cream them together. Now add eggs one by one. Beat them and add Orange juice and mix well. Now add Flour, Baking powder & Baking soda to the mix. Mix everything together and add a little more orange juice to get the right dropping texture. It won't be liquid but rather thick |

| Now mix in the almonds, that were kept aside |

| Pre-heat oven at 350F and use that time to line your baking pan. Once done spray some cooking spray in it and then pour in the cake batter | 

| Place it in the oven and let it bake for 30-45 mins depending on your oven |

Candied Oranges 

| Once the cake is in the oven, slice up your orange as thinly as possible |

| Now take an open pan to boil the water & the sugar and boil till sugar dissolves. Once it starts to boil, place the oranges in it and keep boiling and turning the slices till the outer white starts turning transparent. Then take it out and place it on a flat porous platform |

| Now take a plate and line it up with a cling wrap. Pour the remaining syrup on it and sprinkle some more almonds on top. Once dried break it up |

Assembling

| Once your cake is ready let it cool down. Longer you keep, the better it would be. I suggest a few hours at least. Then cut through the middle and separate the top layer from the bottom |

| In a separate bowl add the coffee to the cream and start beating. Do it till its really thick. Now start putting big dollops on the lower layer till its a massive and sprinkle the brittles made with the left overs of the candied orange syrup. Then gently put the top lid on and lightly press it down |

| Now put the remaining cream and spread it all over the cake. and put the candied orange slices on top. Sprinkle the remaining brittles and you are done |
