Recipes from my favourite cook in the world!

4 eggs, separated

1/2 cup butter, softened

1 cup sugar

1 cup freshly squeezed orange juice

1 teaspoon orange zest

1 teaspoon vanilla powder

3 cups flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon baking soda

pinch of salt

  1. Beat the egg whites until frothy and set aside. In a separate bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and set aside.
  2. Beat the butter for a couple of minutes on its own before adding the sugar in and creaming them together. Then, add the egg yolks one at a time beating until just incorporated. Add the orange juice, zest and vanilla.
  3. Gently fold in about 1/3 of the egg whites, followed by 1/3 of the flour mixture. Repeat two times until the batter is just combined. Stir a foil-wrapped coin into the batter and pour everything into a greased baking pan (I used a silicone mold).
  4. Bake at 350F for 50 minutes or until the skewer comes out clean.

* This is not my mom’s recipe as she traditionally makes a tiropita like they would in the village. This recipe is from ellysaysopadotcom.
