Recipe Greek New Year's Cake

  • Oranges - 1 Piece
  • Wheat flour - 300 Grams
  • Butter - 80 Grams
  • Egg yolk - 3 pieces
  • Egg white - 3 pieces
  • Almonds - 50 Grams
  • Baking Powder - 6 Grams
  • Sugar sand - 250 Grams
  • Cognac - 40 Milliliters

First, let's soak the almonds in boiled water for a coupleMinutes, remove the almonds from the skin, dry it in a dry frying pan and crush it with a mill or blender. Mix the flour with a baking powder. In another container, mix butter, sugar and yolks. Well we rub these ingredients with a mixer - it is necessary to grind about 10 minutes, not less. Otherwise, the cake will not turn out to be tender. We pour into the sugar mixture the juice of one orange and cognac, as well as a little grated orange peel. Whisk until smooth for a couple of minutes. Then mix the almond crumb to the liquid mixture first, and then the flour with the baking powder. Using a mixer at low speed, beat the whites until a white steady foam (this will take 5 minutes). Then carefully mix the proteins with the test. Transfer the resulting dough into a baking dish. Bake in the oven for 30 minutes at a temperature of 200 degrees. We check the readiness for a match - if dry, then the pie is ready. Cook the cake and sprinkle with powdered sugar. Before serving, make a small inconspicuous cut somewhere in the bottom of the cake and put a coin wrapped in a foil there. Bon Appetit! :)
