Category: Pastries / Bread / Cake





  1. Put the ingredients for the batter into a mixing bowl and mix with a hand mixer to a smooth batter.
  2. Grease a flan case pan. Pour the batter into the greased pan and smooth it.
  3. Put the flan case pan on a rack in the oven. Pre-heat oven to 180°C using upper and lower heat, and bake the flan case for about 30 minutes.
  4. After baking, tip the flan case out of the pan and let it cool.
  5. Drain the mandarin oranges, and set aside 18 segments as garnish.
  6. Place the flan case onto a cake plate, and put the cake ring around it. Spread the mandarin oranges onto the flan case.
  7. Fill a small pot with cold water and soften the gelatin leaves in it.
  8. Pour the cream in a mixing bowl and beat with a hand mixer until stiff.
  9. Put the egg whites into a second mixing bowl and also beat them with the hand mixer.
  10. Put the curd cheese, icing sugar, vanilla sugar, lemon juice and egg yolks into a large mixing bowl and whisk until smooth.
  11. Take the gelatin leaves out of the water and squeeze them out. Throw out the rest of the water. Put the gelatin back in the pot. Place the pot on the hob and dissolve the gelatin over low heat until it is completely liquid. Careful: Do no allow the gelatin to become too hot because it will not gel afterwards. 
  12. Add the gelatin to the curd cheese mixture, stirring constantly.
  13. Carefully fold the cream into the curd cheese mixture.
  14. Add the beaten egg whites to the curd cheese mixture and carefully fold it in as well.
  15. Spread the mixture onto the flan case and then chill the cake for at least 3 hours.
  16. To serve, remove the cake ring and decorate the cake with grated chocolate and mandarin orange segments.
