Step-by-step cooking recipe:

Step 1:


Using a mixer, beat the eggs and sugar for 6-7 minutes, until the mass increases 3 times in volume. Sift the flour onto the whipped mixture and mix gently.

Step 2:


Line a springform pan with a diameter of 18 centimeters with non-stick parchment and lay out the dough. Bake at 180 degrees for 15 minutes. Cool the biscuit on a wire rack.

Step 3:


Squeeze the juice out of the orange and strain. You will need approximately 170 g of juice. Leave 40 ml of juice for soaking the biscuit.

Step 4:


Pour the orange juice into a saucepan and add 1 teaspoon of agar agar. Leave for 10 minutes.

Step 5:


Pour in 50 g of sugar, heat to a boil, cook over medium heat for 5 minutes.

Step 6:


Mix cottage cheese, 50 g of sugar, sour cream, add a pinch of salt. The cottage cheese needs to be smooth like paste, without lumps; with mascarpone or ricotta it also turns out very tasty.

If the cake is for adults, then strong alcohol can be added to the syrup. Assembling the cake: place a sponge cake on the bottom of the mold, soak it in orange syrup. Then spread the curd mass with agar, let it harden a little and pour the curd cream with orange syrup on top.
