That Women’s day would be without at least a slice of mimosa cake? this sweet, born in Rieti around the 50s, is in fact one of the symbols of March 8th. And it is associated with the recurrence precisely because of the similarity with the typical flower which is donated. Since it is not a public holiday, however, there is often no time to prepare dessert. And so you give up before you try. Too bad, because it’s actually not that difficult. In this article, then, we give you a simple recipe and quick to do at the last minute.

Yes, because mimosa cake is actually a simple sponge cake filled with cream. The particularity is rather given by the decoration, which makes it resemble the flower from which it takes its name. So let’s start with the sponge cake. The doses you suggest Saffron yellowin the blog of At bibia are for 8-10 people: 3 eggs, 110 g sugar, 90 g flour 1 sachet baking powder for desserts.
Once you have collected everything, it goes to assemble gradually adding the ingredients, beating with the whisk until a homogeneous mixture is obtained. You don’t necessarily have to follow this recipe (perhaps everyone follows their own), just make a regular sponge cake. The important thing is that after cooking in the oven (180°) don’t dry out too much and then immerse it in one wet delicately.
The cream and the decoration
While the sponge cake is cooking, prepare a cream with lemon zest. The slightly citrus aroma is essential for this dessert. These are the doses of Giallo Saffron: 3 egg yolks, 110 g of sugar, 40 g of flour, 20 g of potato starch, 375 ml of milk, lemon zest (1 grated) and 100 ml of liquid fresh cream.
The composition is also important. Cut the base into three discs, crumbling one for decoration. Put another one on a plate, wet it with part of the syrup and fill with the cream. Then cover with another disc, always wet first. Cover everything with a layer of cream, concluding the preparation with the sponge cake crumbs sprinkled on top. Let the cake set for an hour in the fridge before serving.

Here you can have fun. Indeed, you can choose a custard, a diplomat or turn on a black cream. A winning solution is to give an orange aroma, perhaps by putting a little zest in the syrup.
