Meringue Cake With Tangerines

The meringue cake has several layers, and the meringue itself is actually on the bottom of it. In the middle, there is a layer of sponge cake and then a cover of whipped cream and citrus decoration. I prefer tangerines, but you can even decorate this cake with berries and bits of chocolate.

For the sponge cake

3 egg yolks
1,5 dl sugar
2,5 dl flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla sugar
1 dl butter
5 tablespoons of milk

For the meringue

3 egg whites
2,5 dl sugar

also: 3-4 ground hazel-nuts and tangerines to decorate.

Baking steps:

1. We will start with the sponge cake. Start by melting the butter. Mix the egg yolks and the sugar. Add the vanilla sugar, baking powder and flour. Add milk to the melted butter and mix. Pour them into the mixture and mix everything. Spread the mixture on a large pan in a thin layer. There is plenty of baking powder in it so the sponge cake layer is going to grow thick.

2. Now it is time for the meringue. Mix the 3 egg whites with sugar. Pour them over the sponge cake. Sprinkle with the ground hazelnuts. A tiny amount of hazelnuts is enough (4 of them).

3. Bake the two layers for 15-20 minutes at 175° Celsius. When you take it out of the oven, turn the pan on a large surface so now you have the sponge cake on top and the meringue as the layer under it. Wait for the cake to cool down. Mix the whipped cream with half of a teaspoon of vanilla sugar and cover it. Decorate with as many tangerine slices you like! I kept the cake for 1 hour in the fridge just that the whipped cream thickens a bit and now it is good to eat!
