Welcome back, Today I propose my recipe for Easter.
A gluten-free cake with almonds (if you want you can replace the ‘gluten-free’ flour with 00 flour), crunchy on the outside, soft and fragrant inside ; a delicacy!
It ‘s also low in cholesterol because I removed the egg yolks, so its’ perfect for everybody …
In accompaniment, a carrot gelato (italian ice cream) saffron flavored: a very particular taste, I suggest You to try it.
Here’s the recipe:
For the cake (dose for a 24 cm mold):
150 grams of butter
150 grams of sugar
90 grams flour (I used the gluten free kind)
whites of 6 eggs
80 grams of almonds
1/2 grated orange peel and a bit of orange juice
2 teaspoons of baking powder
Whip butter (a cream) with sugar, orange juice and grated orange peel; add the egg whites and continue beating.
Chop almonds coarsely and put them in a pan and toast lightly , then let them cool.
Sift the flour and baking powder then add it to the mixture .
Add almonds and stir again then heat the oven to 180 ° C; in the meantime, grease the mold with butter and flour it then pour the mixture in.
When the oven is at temperature, bake for about 30/40 minutes or until You see that a nice golden crust has formed.
For the carrot gelato (home-made italian ice cream) with saffron:
300 ml. of whole milk
80 ml. of cream
120 grams sugar (if you have it available, substitute 50 g. dextrose)
150 grams of carrots
15 grams of milk powder
1 pinch of saffron
1 stick of vanilla (optional)
3 gr. stabilizer
a pinch of salt
Peel and wash the carrots and cut them into small pieces (or “Julienne”), then place them in a saucepan with milk and sugar (and if you want a vanilla bean cut) and bring to a boil.
Remove the vanilla bean, then add cream, stabilizer, powdered milk and saffron (dose it well or it will override the flavor of carrots!), add a pinch of salt and blend well with the mixer.
In the meantime, while waiting for the emulsion to cool down , turn on the gelato maker machine.
Pour in the mixture and stir for about 30/40 minutes or until You see a well mounted gelato.
Enjoy it in good company and You will not regret it …
