Moist, tangy, and perfectly sweet this orange pastry roll is a star citrus dessert. Made with fresh oranges, this citrus cake roll is made without wheat flour, using cornstarch instead for a gluten free friendly dessert.

Ingredients

  • 2 oranges (juiced and peeled)
  • 400 grams sugar
  • 8 large eggs
  • 40 grams cornstarch
  • 60 grams butter

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
  2. Grease a square cake pan with margarine, line it with baking paper, and then grease the baking paper.
  3. In a food processor, combine the oranges and half of the sugar and blend on high for approximately 10 seconds.
  4. Place the remaining sugar in a bowl and mix in a touch of orange zest, stirring well.
  5. Add the eggs, cornstarch, butter, and blended orange and sugar mix and blend for approximately 3 minutes with an electric mixer.
  6. Place the mix in the cake pan and bake for approximately 20 to 25 minutes. Remember that this should be a moist pastry dough, so it will not look very finished when it is done.
  7. Once cooked, place a damp cloth on a tray and remove the dough from the pan as if it were a cake.
  8. Sprinkle the dough with sugar and carefully but firmly roll it up, wrapping it in the cloth.
  9. Leave the roll wrapped in the cloth until it is only slightly warm.
  10. Carefully remove the cloth and transfer the roll to a serving platter.
  11. Decorate it to taste.

It's sweet and sour, and it absolutely nails it as a dessert! It is so moist and tasty. The orange taste is very powerful, but the sugar really helps sweeten it up. Don't bake it until it LOOKS done. By then, you will have overcooked it. You want this pastry to be moist and look wet almost. If it isn't juicy when you eat it, you left it in a little too long. It really is what makes this recipe so great.
