Flourless chocolate orange cake (GF)
I am the queen of all complains, yeah? I invented complaining, but even for me it's too much.
Ok, life can be hard at times, but this constant whining is really necessary?
After all, we all live in a safe place, where we can leave our house, we all have a roof over our heads, we have food on the table, we get to do nice things at times, like going for a walk in the forest, eating ice cream or watching a silly movie with our loved ones - is it really that bad?
The people who don't have these things - a roof, safety, food, now they have something to complain about, but us? Me? What am I complaining about?
Why do we appreciate things only when we don't have them? Why taking care of ourselves just when we are sick? Why can't we enjoy what we have now, know what we have now.
And boy, foreigners, how much can you complain about the country you live in?
Ok, yes, your country is great, your country is better. And the door is open, you can always go back and free us from all your complaints. Because really, I have enough of my own.
p.s: dear reader, please remind me of this post next week when I will be sitting in front of my computer complaining about life, about money, and above all - the Germans.
6 eggs, separated
pinch of salt
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
zest of 2 organic oranges
Grease a spring form size 26/28cm.
Break the chocolate and melt it together with the butter and orange zest in Bain-Marie. When all is melted leave it to cool a bit.
Meanwhile beat the egg whites with a pinch of salt. When the eggs start to foam, stop the mixer and add some of the honey. Start beating again and repeat that till you used all your honey. Keep on beating the egg whites on high speed until the foam is thick and shiny.
Add the egg yolks to the chocolate and stir with a whisk, if the mixture seems to separate don't worry about it.
Add 2 tablespoons of the egg whites to the chocolate and stir quickly. At this point the mixture is almost certainly separated but again, there is nothing to worry about.
Fold both mixtures gently into each other and set aside one generous cup of the mixture.
Add the cornflour and baking powder to your big bowl and fold gently till you can't see the powder anymore.
Pour the mixture into the prepared tin and bake for 25 minutes.
After taking the cake out of the oven let it cool for 5 minutes, then pour the mixture you set aside on it and spread it gently on the whole top.
