Chocolate Cake with Orange Cream: delicate and fragrant!
Here is the recipe for the delicious Chocolate Cake with Orange Cream. In collaboration with Il Goloso Mangiar Sano, a project dedicated to a healthier and tastier alternative in the kitchen, together we present this delicacy that celebrates the orange in all its splendour.
- 1 Mammarancia organic orange (peel and juice)
- 200g flour
- 150g sugar
- 50g bitter cocoa
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 100ml oil
- 200ml coconut milk
- 200ml whipping cream
- 2 tablespoons of Tortagel
- 1 pinch of salt
Step 1: Prepare the Chocolate Base
In a bowl, mix the flour, bitter cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and a pinch of salt. Add the oil and coconut milk, stirring until smooth. Pour the mixture into a baking tin and bake in the oven at 180°C for about 30 minutes. Leave the base to cool, possibly in the fridge overnight.
Step 2: Prepare the Orange Cream
In a small saucepan, mix the sugar and flour, gradually adding the coconut milk. Add the grated peel of the Mammarancia orange and bring everything to the boil. After cooling, remove the orange peel and whip the cream. Gently incorporate the whipped cream into the cream.
Step 3: Compose the Cake
Line the edge of a hinged mould with baking paper. Cut the chocolate base into 3 or 4 layers. Start composing the cake, alternating layers of chocolate base and cream, finishing with a layer of cream.
Step 4: Preparing the Orange Gelé
In a small saucepan, mix the Tortagel with the fresh Mammarancia orange juice. Bring to the boil and cook for one minute. Let cool slightly and pour the jelly over the cake. Place the cake in the fridge and let it rest for at least one hour.
Step 5: Decorate
Decorate the cake with tufts of leftover cream or custard and thin slices of Mammarancia orange for a final touch of freshness.
This Chocolate Cake with Orange Cream is a delight that enhances the extraordinary Mammarancia oranges in every bite. Thanks to Mammarancia and Il Goloso Mangiar Sano, you can experience the perfect fusion of chocolate flavour and the fragrant aroma of organic oranges, right at home. Enjoy!
