Easter Calendar 2021 - Egg shape cake with orange twist

Today it is Maundy Thursday (Skærtorsdag), which is a public holiday here in Denmark and starting off the Danish Easter vacation with 5 days off from work. It could be, that you are off from work, but this Easter you are not off from home due to the corona situation. So we are staying at home and staying away from each other to keep people 

So today, I am baking small cakes in the shape of eggs using a silicone form in egg shape. I have used this Easter egg cakes, where I have removed the use of liquorice powder and lemon zest, adding in orange zest instead of.  

Next time I will use cocoa powder or dark chocolate to boost the chocolate flavour. The amount of orange was just right.

Easter egg cakes with orange twist: - 8 cakes
  • 100 g soft butter
  • 100 g sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 100 g (cake) flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • 40-50 g milk chocolate - melted
  • 1organic orange - only the zest
  1. Heat up the fan oven to 180'C.
  2. Whip the soft butter and the sugar together into a foamy white mass.
  3. Add in the eggs one by one, whip between each addition of egg.
  4. Add in the (cake) wheat flour and baking powder.
  5. Divide the cake dough into two portions, approx. 200 g per portion.
  6. Add orange zest into one of the cake dough portions.
  7. Melt the chocolate using the micro wave oven.
  8. Stir in the melted chocolate into the second cake dough portion.
  9. Fill half the egg silicone form with the chocolate cake dough. And fill the remaining part with the orange cake dough.
  10. Bake the cake in fan oven at 180'C for 20 minutes.
  11. Cold down the cakes prior to serving them.
  12. Store in airtight container.
