1 lemon , 1 orange , 3 clementines, 8 eggs, 500gr sugar, 300 gr flour (or you can make half recipe)
The secret for this cake is weighting the eggs = weight of sugar and 1/2 of that weight of flour - you will need a scale for that
8 XL eggs = 500 gr sugar = 250 gr flour (+ 50 gr in case you add some orange juice)
4 XL eggs = 250 gr sugar = 125 gr flour (+25 gr if you add juice)
Pre-heat the oven - 150o/180o C
Wash the lemon, the orange and clementines and zest them. In a large bowl mix the sugar with the zests, 4 eggs, 4 yolks and mix.
Reserve the other 4 egg whites and beat them with a mixer untill they are fluffy. Keep them in the fridge while you mix the eggs+sugar+zest.
When the batter is nice and bubbly, then it's time to add 1 clementine juice (or 2 if they're small). Mix well. Now add the flour and mix.
Time to add the egg whites, gently folding... watch the video
Cook each cake for about 25 minutes. You may test it with a toothpick - if the cake is done the toothpick will be nice and clean!
Take the cake out of the heat and turn the baking pan upside down on a "sugar bed" and let the cake cool down. Once it's cooled you may cut it into little squares. Enjoy!
