Orange-y Africain Gateau

africangateau2small.jpg

On one fine day, I was chatting with Jeng Indri and asked her what she was doing. She told me that she was going to bake an africain gateau. I have no idea what it is, but the name sounds exquisit and exotic. It turned out that it is a sponge cake with a vla custard in between its layers.

Later, jeng Indri showed me mbak nining’s recipe (I think I am addicted to read her foodblogs. The recipes are simple and yet do not come up short in taste). Bravo mbak nining! I also got the idea to add tangerine slices to the custard after reading mbak Riana’s recipe

Ingredients: (Please scroll down for recipe in Bahasa Indonesia)
5 eggs
160 gr powdered sugar
50 gr flour
15 gr powdered milk
20 gr corn starch
20 gr cocoa powder
75 gr margarine, melted.
4 tbs water

Vla
250 ml milk
75 gr sugar
3.5 tbs custard powder
1 can of tangerine slices, drained.

Directions:
Preheat the oven at 180 deg celsius
Prepare a 20 cm x 20 xm pan. Grease it and line a parchment paper inside it.
Beat eggs and sugar with an electric mixer until the mixture becomes frothy
Add in flour, powdered milk, corn starch, and cocoa powder gradually (preferably using a sieve). Mix well with a spatula.
Add in the melted butter and 4 tbs of water. Mix well.
Pour the batter into the pan and let it bake for about 45 minutes.

Making the custard:
Dissolve the custard powder with milk (pour milk as needed). Heat the rest of the milk with sugar and let it boil.
Add in the custard mixture, stirr frequently. Let the mixture sit on top of the heat for a few minutes.
Add in the drained tangerine slices. Mix well.

How to Assembly
Cut the cake into two layers (horizontally). You can cut it with a long knife or using a piece of thread.
When the custard mixture becomes warm, spread it on top of the cake. Put the other layer of the cake on top of it. Let it cool before serving.

    I just realized that “cottage,” “porridge,” and “syringe” rhyme with “orange,” thus breaking the common myth that “orange” cannot be part of a rhyme.

    Oh, the recipe? Yep, I’d take it over factory-produced cookies anytime.
